Strategy Retreats

Strategy is not a vision statement. Strategy is not a mission statement. Strategy is an approach. Deliberately choosing what to do and also choosing what not to do and aligning activities or tactics around those choices. All decisions and behaviors advance the strategy. It’s challenging because it compels organizations to focus their actions instead of being scattered.

Our Strategic Leadership two-day retreat achieves the following outcomes:

  • Understanding Strategy (strategy is not a mission or vision statement)
  • Applying the 4 keys of a Successful Strategy
    • Creating Strategy
    • Communicating Strategy
    • Executing Strategy

  • Effective Succession Planning (CEO and critical positions, identifying, attracting and cultivating top talent)
  • Identify Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT)
