  • Evaluate external factors that impact internal decisions
  • Integrate the company’s mission into everyday processes
  • Strategically go beyond the day-to-day activities of the company and provide a big picture of what they want to do and how they will get their
  • Portray the company’s strategic plan succinctly in a few pages

“I used to think that running an organization was equivalent to conducting a symphony orchestra. But I don’t think that’s quite it; it’s more like jazz. There is more improvisation.” ~ Warren Bennis

Setting and Achieving Strategic Goals

The Issue The Solution

One of the biggest factors that set successful organizations apart from others is their ability to move from intention to implementation. This is critical because an organization’s vision becomes reality only when measureable steps are in place.  They function as a daily compass guiding an organization to its desired destination. Yet many organizations struggle to transition their written vision into a corporate reality.

Participants will learn to:

  • Identify key strategic issues for the management team
  • Develop content for strategic plans
  • Prepare external/board presentations
  • Build relationships that drive strategic goals
  • Develop tolls for measuring strategic performance
  • Monitor process toward goals

Leading For Success

The Issue The Solution

Lack of ownership is the number one reason that a strategic plan fails to achieve the desired results.  Although being a leader in strategic planning is done through three steps:  knowing where you are, knowing where you are going, and creating specific action plans to fill that gap.  A clear as crystal strategic plan is what you need.

Our team can get you there by walking through the process and then helping you to identify your strong leadership style to influence others to follow.

Participants will learn to:

  • Identify  your current situation and where you are today
  • Create the future you want to achieve through the desired outcomes
  • Design specific action steps to fill the gaps
  • Create the document that will be easy for you to follow and view success
