Course Overview

High-performance organizations and teams have key factors in common. They develop clear pictures of what they want to create together, they are excited about their basic purpose, and they share a common set of values.

This highly interactive, two-day seminar works through key elements in the visioning sequence and provides leaders with the strategies to create a vision for the growth of your organization.


Course Details

Developing a unified vision is one of the elements that separates highly successful organizations from their competitors. A properly created vision keeps people moving forward while simultaneously responding creatively to change.

Shared visions help partners define their direction, generate commitments, share values, and create strategic plans to move forward together. This course gives you the necessary tools to not only create a cohesive vision for your organization, but also to develop a strategy for clearly and successfully communicating that vision.

This course is most effective for leadership teams and is available as either an on-site seminar or as an off-site retreat.
