Corporate leaders agree that strategic alignment and buy-in are critical for success within leadership teams, key stakeholders, senior staff members, or Boards of Directors.
Organizational alignment with your strategic plan means that your Vision, Mission, Values, Goals and Actions are aligned such that your entire organization from the top-down and bottom-up knows what they need to do to be successful.
Without strategic alignment, your team will have different priorities, everyone will move in different directions, and leaders will be forced to micromanage to extinguish fires, making it impossible to achieve your goals.
We call this the Multiple Destination Trap. It limits your team's potential, of you and your leadership team and leads to frustration and lower employee engagement.
Our team can lead you through a proven and professionally facilitated strategic planning process to help your team escape the Multiple Destination Trap and align your team toward a clear Vision, Mission, Values, Goals and Actions which we call: One Destination.
• Align your Board or Leadership team around its vision, mission, values, and goals.
• Obtain buy-in and input from your leadership team.
• Establish clarity about where you're going and what you need to do to get there.

There are many benefits to doing your strategic planning session online as well as in-person.
We go over the various benefits in the video and infographic below.
We offer strategic planning services online and in person all over the world with facilitators located across North America.
Depending on your location we may have one of our facilitators go to your location, or we might suggest working online.
Once we agree to work together on your strategic planning, we typically have a minimum of 3 weeks of pre-work, including interviews, a group survey, and document review.
From there we'll facilitate your strategic planning process in person (2-3 days) or online (5 weeks).
Once we complete your initial strategic planning process, we'll provide a written recap in 10 business days.
Once your strategic planning process is finished, our Implementation Plans run for 12 months or more.
Great question! Sometimes, yes.
That said, our process is industry agnostic as has been successful with dozens of different industries and companies big and small.
On the small chance you're in an industry we haven't worked with, we'll focus on making sure we understand important terminology and buzz words when going through the pre-work phase, so we can quickly get up to speed.
Yes we do (at an additional cost). Depending on the needs of your organization you may need to consult with internal and external stakeholders as part of your strategic planning process.
These sessions are typically 2-3 hours long and can vary from 5-150 participants.
If you aren't sure if your team is ready for a full strategic planning session, we do 3-hour Alignment sessions to get have a conversation about:
-What's going well?
-What's not going as well as we'd like?
-Where are we going as a team?
-What do we need to do next to get there?
These sessions are virtual, include pre-work, and cost $2,500.
If you'd like to start here, you can contact us for a consultation.
About 40% of the clients we work with are non-profit organizations.
This includes local, regional and national membership organizations, financial and education institutions, and mission-driven organizations.
We believe for-profits should act more like not-for-profits, and not-for-profits should act more like for-profits.
The better you do financially, the more you can do for your community. We want to help.

All our facilitators are trained to deal with conflict and to be able to lead challenging conversations with passionate people.
Our approach to facilitation is by asking questions and having all participants reflect for themselves on the answers.
We make a point of having equal airtime, and making sure everyone feels heard.
That said, your team needs to be coachable, willing and open to participate in such a process, and if they aren't then there's nothing we can help with.
Whether you are a seasoned veteran of strategic planning or this is the first time reflecting on your mission and core values, our process will make sure everyone on your team participates and gets the learning outcomes and deliverables from the strategic planning process.
Yes. We don't take on any implementation or transformation clients without first making sure they have a clear One Destination.
