Many organizations will do short-term strategic planning; they have a plan for three years and then see where they are before defining what to focus on next. We wanted a very powerful, bold vision to guide our mission into the future, and we are indeed much stronger and more sustainable because we took the longer view.
Our founder is the classic entrepreneur; he has the strategic mind of the founder and appears to operate from the gut feel strategy guy. It is hard for him to translate his thoughts into a business plan. Working with the Focused Momentum approach, we were able to get those great ideas out of his head and build a plan that the entire team could implement.
Clear direction for strategic planning and a really good focus on the big picture. Great follow-through.
The Focused Momentum team facilitates conversations amongst the group without swaying the conversation. They kept the group on track and allowed us to formulate our thoughts and objectives.
Cecilia's facilitation was terrific. Even in the middle, when we thought we were all over the place, Cecilia saw the direction clearly and got us there together.
I realize that our strategy session four years ago started us on the path to help us consider a different future than just going it alone. On more than one occasion, we could have been distracted, but each time, we stuck to our plan and attracted a great acquisition candidate. Now, the future for our entity and staff is very bright. That was our objective when we first met with Cecilia and her team. They were an amazing force in facilitating the first real strategic planning process for us, and this work sowed the seeds of a wonderful harvest.
