Leadership Strategy Facilitation
Effective strategy sessions accelerate change by cultivating dialogue, aligning perspectives, co-creating solutions and fostering shared commitment to purpose, positive impact and outcomes.
Too often leadership strategy sessions are viewed as an ineffectual use of time — restrained by hidden agendas, team dynamics and tedious exercises that avoid addressing the main issues. Respect and honesty are essential for ensuring that everyone’s voice is heard — and understood.
Through more than 25 years of experience facilitating executive, board and senior management working sessions, I have become adept at directing difficult conversations and positively challenging leadership. I focus on facilitating dialogue needed to broaden perspectives, cultivate shared vision and accelerate change.
To identify the potential red flags that could prevent you from achieving your goals, I’ll assess team dynamics, cultural quirks and practical business issues in advance. During the session, I’ll blend strategic insight with stimulating exercises and pragmatic engagement to help alleviate any tensions and disagreements that may arise. Strategy sessions are designed with half, full and two-day time frames in mind — or they can delivered virtually as two to three hour segments over the course of one or two months. Regardless of the time frame, you can confidently expect more than the usual “leadership” and “strategic planning” workshops — and should come prepared to roll up your sleeves!
