Traditionally, strategy development is done through a process that invites a few experts and leaders to look at an organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. We’ve found it to be significantly more effective to include the people who are closest to the work in the strategy development process. The outcome is a strong commitment to the strategy that is created, inspired action, and greater ease in implementation.
We are experts at strength-based, high engagement strategy development processes, using tools and methods that have been honed over decades of practical application. We enable clients to use the collective wisdom of their organization or community in order to develop shared and desired outcomes and strategies for working collaboratively to achieve those goals.
Our philosophy is that people commit to what they help create, thus participation across organizational levels leads to:
- Rapid implementation of programs and strategy, as engaged employees take ownership of their actions and environment
- An absence of the need to sell partners and employees on the strategy
- Complete understanding of a shared vision for the future across an entire organization
- Sustainable outcomes, as stakeholders internalize and own their future and step quickly and confidently into that future
