Strategy + Leadership Business Consulting Solutions
The biggest risk to solid strategy is ineffective execution. Many companies create detailed vision statements and guiding strategies then face challenges getting the alignment needed to operationalize them. Lack of clarity impacts hiring the best talent, telling a coherent story of 'where we want to go and how we want to get there' and negatively effects productivity across teams that need each other to deliver.
Unless individuals understand how their own work supports an overarching strategy, purpose, or end-goal, they’ll ignore and dismiss it.
Executive and Leadership Team Alignment
Is misalignment costing you dearly? Mentally? Physically? Financially? If so, then it's time to move your team from friction to clarity to alignment.

Full-Day Business Planning Session
Want an outside perspective to help you and your team gain clarity? Wish everyone could fully participate and not worry about the day’s details? Want to create a level playing field to encourage all ideas are surfaced and unintended bias doesn’t creep in?
Engage one of our experienced strategy consultants to facilitate a full-day planning session using our Assess. Align. Accelerate. framework to take you and your team all the way through to action by the day’s end.
Here’s how we begin:
- Before we come together, we meet (virtually or in-person) to understand the good, bad, and ugly of previous planning meetings.
- We distill the themes and look for trends that need to be taken into consideration during the session.
- We determine the topic(s) that need to be of focus and who should be in the room actively participating in this forward-looking session.
- For most companies we work with, pre-work is often an important aspect to effective planning sessions. Together we will decide if it’s a fit for this setting.
- Finally, it’s important that we define and co-create what success for this day looks like.
During the business planning session, expect an inclusive experience where differing perspectives are encouraged, genuine curiosity will lead to major insight, and everyone will want to fully participate and take ownership of the roadmap that comes from this day together.
