Leadership and Life Retreat
“I’m too busy.” “I invested a lot of time in my development in the past, but the ROI wasn’t there.” “I’d like have a plan to make my next move , if I could find an effective and efficient process to do so.” Have you made these any of these comments to yourself?
If you have , this leadership and life strategy retreat might be for you. Even a busy executive can invest 1 day to see clearly how to work smarter and live better over the next 5-10 years. Through this fast track process, you will develop a one-page, personal strategic plan with prioritized actions and accountabilities set in a whole life perspective, and all within 24 hours.
Better results in less time.
Retreats are designed to the fit you and acknowledge your culture. There are 3 phases – here’s what they look like:
We will clarify expectations and customize the process to fit your unique goals and personality through a series of phone calls. From this background you will receive a pre-retreat report with a personalized agenda.
You’ll arrive at my planning center in Birmingham or another offsite location around noon. That afternoon we will map your life and leadership history and explore future possibilities on your personalized storyboard. Meaningful trends, distinctive patterns and new options will emerge during this personal insight and visioning session. You will process this data overnight.
The following morning, your plan design work will begin with an accelerated prioritizing method, which will narrow all your ideas into actionable concepts. Before your eyes, your custom leadership and life plan will materialize on the storyboard. Your plan will be documented on one-page and including follow-up coaching and support to put your plan into action.
This planning process is designed for leaders in transition that fall into three main categories. Learn more about when healthy transitions are needed.
Strategy and Execution Consulting - Compression Planning
Better results in less time.
Do you have an organizational plan in a binder that no one understands or is committed to? Does your team have a project idea or concept that’s feels so overwhelming you don’t know where to begin? Were you assigned a major initiative that got off the ground, but has stalled … again?
The answer is Compression Planning, a story boarding and visual graphics process , applies four powerful steps to cut through the clutter and distractions that can bog down decisions, planning and execution.
For groups in particular, Compression Planning leverages collaborative time, so your team can make better decisions much faster. The best part is that the process gets everybody on the same page, engaged and fully committed to the outcome. Compression Planning is a great choice for a project team with limited time to plan and a pressing need to execute quickly and effectively.
A darn good plan Today is better than perfect plan six months from Tomorrow.
Compression Planning is also an excellent process for individuals undergoing personal transition – whether moving into an organization, moving up within the leadership, or moving on into retirement. (link to 1-day retreat)
