This course is based on a participatory planning process that leads to action and commitment. Managers, supervisors, and facilitators must enable groups to maximize their potential for strategic thinking and problem-solving. This course demonstrates practical facilitation techniques to get visionary and strategic results. You will learn how to: create a compelling, sustainable vision; identify and manage hidden issues and systemic blockages; shape strategy and strategic directions with a group and inspire innovative action plans that increase implementation effectiveness. ICA’s participatory planning process is unique because it allows you to achieve consensus among participants of diverse cultural, economic and political backgrounds. If you are about to lead strategic planning or design a strategic planning process and want action and results instead of plans that gather dust, this course is a must. Contact Linda O’Halloran @ 306-775-7480 or for more information.
