The Four Habits of Great Execution – How to achieve results

Course details

CPD Points





Half day (09:00-12:00)

Course Overview

Success doesn’t necessarily come from breakthrough strategy but from flawless execution. The good thing about execution issues is that they are within our control. The Four Habits of Great Execution is a half-day workshop for leaders who want to improve results, even when executing the strategy requires significant change in behaviour from their teams.

Course Content

In this half-day session you will learn:

  • Five steps which are essential to build a great team
  • Why so many strategies are quietly suffocated during execution
  • Four habits of great execution which will ensure that your strategy delivers results:
    • Focusing on shiny goals
    • Acting on lead measures of success
    • Maintaining focus, knowing the score
    • Creating a rhythm and culture of accountability

Course Benefits

Stop and ask yourself this question - which of these do leaders struggle with more? Is it creating a strategy or executing the strategy? Most leaders immediately answer “Execution!”

Now, ask yourself a second question. If you think about the business courses that you have taken, what did you study more – execution or strategy? Most leaders immediately answer “Strategy!”

This half-day workshop helps to redress the balance, equipping you with four habits of great execution, a recipe for ensuring that strategy delivers results.

    Chris Atkinson has a passion for executive team development and coaching business leaders to achieve their full potential. As a Vice President at Microsoft he learned the lesson that if managers are from Mars then leaders are from Venus, and so began his own leadership journey. The true measure of a leadership team is whether it attains the results that it sets out to achieve. Chris’ pursuit of leadership excellence re-invigorated Microsoft’s Asia Pacific Headquarters, enabled countries in Microsoft South East Asia to become best in class and inspired Microsoft Japan to go from worst to first, overcoming amazing odds. As their Vice President, Chris’s biggest contribution to the success of his teams, which spanned more than a decade, was his decision to become a coach to his leaders. Chris helped each team build trust, crystalize growth opportunities, achieve goal clarity and implement the disciplines of great execution required to achieve their success.

    In 2013 Chris moved back to Guernsey and is now an executive team development consultant and coach, having packaged his experience, learning and insights into a modular leadership development program called "Good to Great!" which has already taken him to more than 10 countries around the world. Chris Atkinson is an Executive Coach for the GTA Coaching Centre.
