Focusing on creating employee experiences is table stakes. To attract and retain mission critical talent, take a BOLD redesign approach to COMPETE for Talent.

In this vlog post, I share my experience as a CEO and the importance of focusing on strategic priorities. I emphasize that a lack of focus in the C-suite can lead to burnout, unmet goals, and decreased employee engagement. I highlight the role of the CHRO in ensuring the alignment of the C-suite and share an exercise called the "sailboat exercise" to help identify and prioritize challenges.
The sailboat exercise involves drawing a sailboat and having team members write down what they think is moving the organization forward, followed by anonymously listing the factors holding the team back. Team members then vote on the top challenges, which can be used as a basis for addressing these issues.
I encourage feedback on the sailboat exercise and other methods to maintain alignment on strategic priorities in the C-suite.
