Program Summary:

Thinking strategically is something that we all know is important, yet we don't spend as much time doing it as we should.  Thinking strategically is particularly challenging when working in a team-based environment.

This program provides a series of tools and processes that keep work-teams moving and on track, from creative chaos to detailed action plans.

You Will Learn:

In this workshop you will learn to:

  • Generate, categorize and reach consensus on hundreds of ideas in less than an hour
  • Involve others without digressing or getting off track
  • Determine cause and effect relationships and identify driving issues
  • Identify and display gaps in current and desired performance
  • Build consensus, create support for ideas and generate buy-in for action plans
  • Allow participants to safely contribute openly and honestly
  • Provide practical, easy to follow steps toward solutions
