Mokuteki is a Japanese word meaning “Purpose.” Like many words, its made up of 2 characters. One word means “Vision”, and one means “the way to act.” In other words… Aligning our Actions with our Vision.
After a few decades of leading his own teams, Todd Westra was brought in by some of the world’s largest organizations to conduct team building and leadership training for them.
The end result? Developing a system of helping leaders gain Clarity on their Vision, build Connection with their teams, and ultimately develop a Culture that will embrace the strategy and vision they have for their organization.
Todd Westra has spent his entire career leading teams in both his organizations and in some of the world’s largest companies. As a leader, Todd experienced first-hand times when he was in sync with his teams, and times when he wasn’t! Developing a culture that embraced a vision of where he felt the company should go led to some amazing successes.
Todd has spent the last several years helping other leaders work through the process of aligning the actions of their teams to match their vision of where they were hoping to take them. From founders to mid-level managers, the problem is the same. When the leader lacks clarity of where they want to guide their team, growth is only achieved by luck.
Todd has been teaching leaders for years how to reach amazing levels of High Performance by focusing on these 3 areas of leadership. I have recently published a course called “The 3C’s of Leadership” on toddwestra.com, and encourage leaders at ALL levels to connect with me for a FREE 30 minute coaching session to determine if the course is a good fit for resolving issues they may be facing.
