Strategy Coaching

When successfully completing strategic planning sessions, executives most often walk away with a half-dozen or so priority strategies designed to move their organization forward to the next level.  Several questions always arise:

  • What do we do next?
  • How do we get the plan off the page and into action?
  • How do we get our organization aligned so that the performance plans, the HR plans, and the project plans for every department all focus on achieving our target results?

Past experience has indicated that without a focus on execution, the value of the strategic plan is often not fully realized.
