Visioning, Strategic & Operational Planning
Often visioning can get caught up in the blue sky of the future. Our approach is practical, useable and generates ideas that are at once visionary and achievable. Our clients leave with a clear statement of where their organization wants to be in 3 to 5 years. The vision is consensus-based and driven by the wisdom of each participant.
We design and facilitate dynamic planning sessions that put the stakeholder first. Groups choose us to work with them to create plans with momentum. We bring proven methodologies that support learners of all types. At the end of the process, Our clients have, in hand, directly relevant, meaningful plans that they can put into effect immediately. Created in the participants’ language, each person owns the plan. They include measurable outcomes and assigned accountabilities. The plans are able to live inside today’s dynamic reality.
Teams can get stuck. Assumptions are made. Operational differences push sections apart. We can assist with reconnecting your people. Helping teams work through tough situations, making good decisions, drives much of the work we do. Groups in difficult situations can move forward.
We work with the team leader and members to craft processes that bring alignment. We assist clients to connect remotely located teams through the use of technology in facilitation. We work with people to move past “turf protection” to create a shared vision. We lead groups to make consensus-based decisions. These decisions “stick” because all involved contributed to their creation.
As reliance on technology increases, and budgets for face-to-face meetings shrink, we frequently work with clients using virtual means. Visioning, strategic and operational planning can all be undertaken without bringing your staff in from the field. Let us show you how!
Having worked with an organization that was spread out amongst over 30 counties, she is skilled at virtual facilitation and leading online meetings.In addition to her work with face-to-face and remotely-located groups, Karyn is the Editor of Global Flipchart, the monthly publication of the International Association of Facilitators.
Karyn is well-grounded in the ToP Methods (Technology of Participation), though she does not limit her practice to those methods. She takes the time to work with the client to develop processes that best suit the individual needs of the group. Sounds like an oxymoron? Within each group are folks whose varied learning styles need to be respected and addressed.
