ABOUT MIRROR MIRROR

Mirror Mirror is a different way to look at organizational alignment. It starts from understanding that people interpret things differently. When their perspectives don’t line up, the alignment gaps impact overall performance.

Mirror Mirror takes a team-centred approach to identify and measure these alignment gaps between people. The insights help leaders address the factors affecting their team’s performance. Tried and tested, the process improves engagement, ownership, and effectiveness.

WHAT IS TEAM ALIGNMENT?

Alignment is when all forces move in the same direction to minimize energy loss and maximize outcomes. In an organizational setting, this means people can work from a shared reality about purpose, goals, behaviours, and mental models to achieve the best results.

Organizational alignment is typically focused on aligning people to the strategy and brand. Research in the social sciences now shows us people cannot just be told to align. They bring different interpretations, biases and assumptions. Most of these differences are invisible and can build up a fog that prevents effective decisions and actions, large and small, which undermine engagement and performance.

In this light, organizations wanting to improve performance need to focus on alignment to the strategy and between people. When team members are aligned to the strategic frame as well as within their shared context, they are more agile and effective. Team alignment does not mean that people need to agree with each other, just that their views are more conscious and compatible.

THE EXPERIENCE SO FAR

Designed in the Netherlands in 2016, Mirror Mirror is tried and tested by companies like Samsung, Aon, the Rotterdam School of Management, the European Union innovation and technology sector, and the University of Upper Austria.

“It worked because everyone was engaged. It was their pressure and their context. I fully endorse Mirror Mirror as a cutting-edge approach to leadership communications and employee engagement for change and innovation”.

FH-Prof. Dr. Johanna Anzengruber, University of Applied Sciences, Upper Austria.

“The Mirror Mirror facilitators were professional and flexible; the analysis was deep, absorbing our complexity and diversity; and the follow up was complete. The whole experience that Mirror Mirror offers is unique and competitive. The outcomes represent significant value. I recommend it highly.”

HR Director, European Union Innovation Agency

“This is what we’ve been missing – and efficient way to get feedback and prepare a plan with everyone already engaged in the process.”

HR Manager, Samsung

ABOUT THE TRAINER

Lindsay Uittenbogaard began her career running small businesses before spending 15 years in communication leadership roles with multinational organisations in the energy, IT, and telecommunications industries. It was the contrast between the micro and macro working environments that sparked an insatiable curiosity around how people align differently in different contexts and the profound implication of that on business performance. This led Lindsay to develop an alignment process and network to support organizations with alignment, called Mirror Mirror.

An IABC Accredited Business Communicator, Lindsay is also a certified member of the Reputation Institute and a published author in the Gower Handbook on Internal Communication 2008. She holds a Creative Arts degree with honours, post-graduate diplomas in International Business Communication Management, and Broadcast Journalism, and is certified by the CIPD.
