Strategic Planning Offsites:

The knock against the strategic planning process is well known. Nearly everyone can relate to painfully-long sessions that result in a binder full of aspirations and big dreams. The binder is set aside for 12-months, only to be dusted off in preparation for next year's big event.

We bring a radically-different approach to the Strategic Planning process...we call it "Strategic Prioritization."

We drive management teams to make the tough decisions about limited resources (time, money, people, bandwidth) so that they can focus on those opportunities with the greatest strategic impact. That means, some appealing opportunities will be set-aside in favor of more strategic investments.

We are experts at facilitating those spirited debates. We get the group to agree on a crisp set of corporate priorities, along with accountabilities, timelines and investment criteria for budgets.

Hiring a professional facilitator will dramatically improve the effectiveness and lasting business impact of your strategic planning session.

As an outside facilitator, we challenge teams to consider how 'already swamped' teams and executives are going to find the time needed to effectively execute on these new initiatives. We focus on a team's ability to execute rather than just dream.

The most brilliant plans are worthless if not executed. More times than not, a simple plan, well-executed, is far more effective than highly-detailed strategies that are bogged down with too many contingencies, excessive moving parts or complex interdependencies.

Prior to your next planning event, let's have a conversation about how our process and approach ensures that agreements are obtained and that no dust gathers on your plans.

    "I have found John Callos and ExecuBridge to be a valuable resource in enhancing the skills of our management team. Their coaching is results oriented and delivered with a high quality of energy. John does not offer a "quick fix" to issues, but instead creates a disciplined approach that will ensure success long after the engagement has ended."

    "ExecuBridge’s individually-focused one on one training and coaching has helped my managers grow their skill sets quickly and prepare them for the next level."

    "ExecuBridge took our executives to new heights and allowed our people to focus on highly sensitive issues, including needed behavioral adjustments and skill deficits. Had these issues been broached through the standard protocol, the working relationships would have been irreparably damaged. ExecuBridge protected vital working relationships, made our personnel more important and valuable to the organization and positioned them for additional responsibilities."
