It is not easy to create a high performing team of leaders when they have demanding individual jobs and struggle to even make space to meet. The special conditions of the top space -- immense complexity and responsibility for the whole system -- can lead to territorial issues among tops, the breakdown of potentially productive partnerships, and costly and divisive stove-piping throughout the system.

The THE VISTA NETWORK approach to leadership alignment uses some well proven tools like MBTI in combination with the work of Barry Oshry in understanding the system dynamics which are at play in the ‘space’ of top teams. Our diagnostic work assesses several domains of leadership to understand the levels of trust and support, their clarity of purpose, role clarity, engagement with the system, leadership development. We use a wide range of tools to support development and alignment including Peter Koestenbaum’s Leadership Diamond and polarity partnership.
