Strategic Planning

• For associations, teams, and individuals in business or non-profit

I’ve participated in more planning sessions than I care to remember, so I know first hand how frustrating and painful the process can be: over-reaching, unfocussed, endless word smithing. Sound familiar?

A successful planning session results in clear, actionable strategic plan that brings the vision to life.

As a planning facilitator with more than 10 years experience, I help individuals and teams, including local, regional and state associations, create strategic plans that stick using the Best Work method of aligning intention (what you want to accomplish and why), direction (where you are heading and who is accountable), and action (how you will do it).
