Annual Strategic Planning
This workshop gives you and your management team a chance to review and update a strategic plan for your next 3-5 years of operating. The outcomes of this workshop will include clarity on your stakeholders and their needs, needed roles, product/service and financial goals, as well as a timeline and action plan for each project team. Participating in this workshop annually will help ensure that your company goals and targets are strategically aligned. It can be done with a small core team of management or a larger team of up to 15 people including project leads.
Annual Culture Review
This group workshop gives your team a chance to check-in on your company’s culture roadmap, which includes an evaluation on the current core and accidental values, refining the characteristics of your ultimate employee, and an action plan for implementing your aspirational values. By devoting time and energy to keeping your staff and company culture aligned, you will not only be increasing their buy-in to the business, but will be better equipped to make sure you continue to have the right people on your team. It can be done just with management or with your whole team in small groups.
This session is an interactive and highly engaging experience that will improve your team’s communication, trust and creativity, as well as revisit tools for conflict resolution and effective teamwork. By devoting time and energy to your staff in this way, you will show how much you value them and you will have the chance to address any group dynamics that are impacting employee buy-in or productivity. This can be done in smaller project groups or as one large group, either at your office on-site or at an off-site retreat.
Reflection & Problem Solving
This workshop will engage your team in addressing operational challenges, and deal with issues before they become deal breakers for any of your customers or staff. By openly discussing the root of any issues, the team will be able to reflect, uncover and address operational or personnel issues which are slowing down productivity or threatening the cohesiveness of the team by brainstorming solutions and developing an action plan for moving forward. This workshop can be done with a smaller project or management team, or as a larger group of up to 15 people.
The first step in any large organizational shift is to assess the proposed change and what this implies for the organization. This series of workshops allows you to understand the perspective of different stakeholder groups and the likely impacts on these groups. Leadership involvement and the governance structure of the change will have to be aligned to the overall project objectives. The first workshop aims to develop a compelling vision and key messages of the shift so internal stakeholders can clearly understand what success will look like. The second workshop aims to highlight the gaps between the current state and future state of the different areas of the business that will be impacted. This high-level perspective will allow your team to determine the scale and scope of change for each department and will provide insight into potential ripple effects of any changes you're planning to make.
