Strategy determines how successful a business can be. At its best, Strategy is a ‘code’ that is unique to every business that unlocks long-term, enduring business performance. At its worst, Strategy is unproven, unclear and undelivered. Lockstep’s rigourous Strategy process sets the business on a strong course, providing a clear mandate for leaders to deliver.

Effective business strategy requires two components:

Commerical Strategy that interrogates the core assumptions that underlie a business model and proves out those assumptions; Leadership Strategy that takes the insights that a Commercial Strrategy produces and folds it into operational habits, organisational culture and leadership accountabilities.

Commercial Strategy can be likenend to science. Leadership Strategy can be likened to art. Both contribute to making a business competitive, well-organisted and aligned around a way forward.

What our clients say

Most of my previous experience with leadership coaches has been underwhelming: theoretical models, loose deliverables, trite commentary, and superficial analysis. Rowan is the absolute antithesis of this and the impact is fast, measurable and deep. The work is often hard but pushes people through doors very quickly.
Jonty Fisher
What the hell should a CEO focus their energy on? It's a question I grappled with for years as our company and its demands on me began to grow. Rowan has helped me figure some of this stuff out and point me in the right direction.
Styli Charalambous
I have had the privilege of being informed and inspired by Rowan over the past few years. His prompts, processes, and conversations are always deeply valuable, intellectual, and practical. His IP is unequaled, but his humanity and his deep belief that being a CEO can be joyful, creative, and energising - and not just something to be endured - is very unique and useful.
Kevin Liebenberg
My journey with Rowan has been life-changing and continues to be life-changing. Not only for my CEO work but as a person too. Every time I’ve sat around a table with Rowan and my CEO peers, I feel challenged and inspired. Somehow the topics always hit the right spot at a time I need it.
