Transforming from Tactical to Strategic Leadership

This is a unique workshop designed for leaders who want to learn how to transform to a strategic mindset and learn the most critical skills for taking a strategy to execution. Many leaders struggle with managing tactical daily work, firefighting and solving problems and find they have no time to take a look at the bigger picture or strategically plan for process improvements or cultural changes needed by the team and organization.

Through this workshop, you will be challenged to think of a few key strategic change initiatives you would like to implement for your teams, and then walk through a series of group and individual activities to define a Vision, Strategy and Execution plan. Come prepared to do some self-reflection and share real world challenges and successes you’ve had relating to translating strategy to execution.
