Laying the foundation for strategy

We meet in advance - online or in person - with meeting stakeholders to understand your needs and objectives and then develop a plan for generating the results you want. Meetings typically last from 1 to 3 days.

We can support your Strategic Planning to fit your timeframe, using a team approach.

Use innovative tools for brainstorming, critiquing, and defining a plan. We can also facilitate an update to your mission, vision, and values.

Take time to identify an implementation plan that includes people skills and clear roles and responsibilities.

Meeting Facilitation: from Executive Team Meetings to Large Corporate Gatherings

Team Leadership Retreat 03

Lakeside discussion

Are you looking for a more productive way to conduct your next management meeting or gathering that will produce a more lively and engaging atmosphere?

Team Craft Experiential Meetings are facilitated to raise good questions, explore creative alternatives, and draw out everyone's best ideas to produce an agreed upon plan and identify team ownership and accountability.

We provide an engaging and fun team discussion and problem solving session. We involve everyone in lively interactions using well tested, yet innovative, meeting tools.

Use an On-line Discussion Forum before and/or after your next in-person meeting

Team Leadership Retreat 04

Cross team activity

New meeting technologies for both online and blended settings (an in-person and online mix) benefit from good facilitation skills. While these technologies make collaboration across distance and time possible, using them effectively can be a challenge.

Team Craft brings the power of an Action Learning environment to this new technology.

Also consider adding an on-line discussion forum to your meeting plan. It is a productive way to gather new ideas and learn about each other's work before an in-person meeting.

Shorten the “learning curve” for using new collaborative technologies.

Hold an online discussion forum blog prior to an Executive Retreat to make the most of limited in-person meeting time.

Recording team values

Team members from across time zones can access a forum when it is most convenient for them to read and post to discussion topics that focus on critical issues.

Participants can post thought provoking and insightful ideas on a level not typically experienced in a short meeting. The accumulated content of each discussion can be used to better focus and jump start an in-person meeting, or can serve as a way to keep a conversation going after time runs out in a meeting. The moderator can pose questions and poll the group as appropriate.

Research commissioned by the U S Army Research Institute has found that electronic discussions produce higher quality initial and final solutions to complex problems than time-limited face-to-face discussions. Participants operate in an environment that gives equal weight to all input, and input is better thought out before being shared.
