Strategic Planning – Focusing Individual Passions into Accountable Group Action

Effective strategic planning translates a group’s dreams and visions into a concrete plan for collaborative action. In this workshop, we guide teams through a step-by-step strategic planning process that emphasizes the important role of facilitation, the process of establishing effective group norms, the values of simplicity and transparency, and the power of good questions posed at the right time.


  • Examine the mindset and behaviors that facilitate effective strategic planning
  • Learn a strategic planning process to help groups translate their exciting “big picture” vision into realistic and measurable actions
  • Identify challenges to effective group planning, and discuss effective responses

Target Audience:  This program is targeted to those with little to no experience leading a strategic planning process. It can also serve as a valuable refresher course for those with some previous experience.
