Learn how graphic recording of strategic planning sessions deepens the work of your team, builds trust among your team members and weaves together diverse perspectives into a composite “picture” that reflects the collective intelligence in the room.

Join us on September 29th, and learn how the World Café model, utilizing graphic recording, can support your strategic planning process.

My co-presenter this month is Nevin Kamath is a Harvard-trained leadership and strategy facilitator based in Austin, Texas.

Organizations that do strategic planning well have a clearer focus, stronger teams, empowered employees, and transparent management. This month’s meetup will provide you with two approaches to strategic planning and grant you the breathing space to take the necessary steps.

You will learn what you need and will receive FREE tools to produce the most effective strategic plan for your nonprofit.

WHAT IS IT?
It is a disciplined effort that…
 Produces fundamental decisions & actions that shape and guide what an organization is, who it serves, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future.
 It articulates not only where an organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful.

 Set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations
