Why is it so hard to get work done?

Most leaders know where their organization needs to go and what work needs to get done, but they struggle with getting their people aligned and working together to execute their strategic priorities. They’re leading, but their teams aren’t following.

86% of executives and employees cite lack of collaboration or ineffective communication for workplace failures.

97% believe a lack of alignment within a team directly impacts the outcome.

It doesn’t have to be so hard.

What Our Clients Say…

  • “Working with Bregman Partners through the Big Arrow process gave us a terrific boost as we embarked on the first year of a multi-year strategy. The process helped shine a spotlight on the areas that needed attention and allowed us to collectively problem solve to achieve better strategic alignment and mutual understanding. It also exposed many inadequacies and weak spots within the organization’s leadership. It forced us each to step up in unexpected and meaningful ways and gave us direction on how to make great traction towards our objectives.”

    Michael Thatcher, CEO, Charity Navigator

  • “We had a new team on board and brought Peter in to help us… he was able to identify the issues that were negatively impacting the team and coached each team member individually to work through them.  He has a flexible, yet structured approach that allowed him to respond to our needs.  His Big Arrow process has been embraced by everyone involved in the project and is now a part of our language and culture.”

    Gail Fierstein, SVP HR, Pearson

  • “My business was facing serious challenges and was struggling with how to pivot away from legacy products and toward new ideas and strategies everyone could agree on. I learned about the Big Arrow process/methodology from an article Peter wrote and felt it would be valuable to my group.  The results were very strong – we achieved alignment as a management team, injected energy into the broader sales organization and “The Big Arrow” became the lens through which all decisions were made, allowing for better and faster prioritization that everyone could understand and follow.”

    —John Carroll, CEO, Allianz Global Investors Distributors
