Creating Strategic Clarity & Alignment

Your Organization needs this Workshop!

A strengthened internal capacity for strategic planning, managing, measuring, and rewarding for change can lead to $50,000 to $100,000 in yearly savings and/or revenue (a conservative estimate). Clarity and commitment to a strategic process reduces costs associated with mistakes, mission creep, conflict, legal fees, and productivity loss.


Where is your organization really heading? In too many directions? Too few? How clear is everyone about what your organization aims to accomplish collectively? What do collaboration and learning look like between different strategic imperatives? What type of environment do you need to sustain strategic clarity? What structures might be preventing strategic integration in your organization? In addition to answering these questions, this workshop zooms in on the short and long-term opportunities and threats that exist if your organization does not change! This workshop introduces participants to a tried-and-true approach for creating strategic clarity, which Dr. Brendel has used while consulting with clients throughout the world.

2.5 hour and 1/2 day options available
