Attain New Democratic Tools and Skills to Facilitate Relevant Strategic Planning

Wednesday, July 31st | Online Interactive Workshop | Concrete Tools

Strategic Planning. The big two words. Our collaboratively managed teams must do this in a special way. In today’s world, we need to be able to review and shift our strategic plans nimbly and with agility. Everything can change in a blink, and we must be up for the challenge. That’s why we’ve designed this workshop. In this workshop, you will walk you through a democratic strategic planning method that you can put to use in your cooperative team to keep you aligned to your goals and visions. 

Some of the key take aways are:

  • A new understanding of strategic planning in collaborative teams
  • A step by step process for strategic planning with prompts and templates
  • A vision of what a complete strategic planning (short and long term) will look like in your team
  • Fun interactive and democratic ways to get alignment
  • An understanding of why strategy is key to accountability and self-care

In our cooperative and mission-driven teams, we are often pulled in so many different directions to tend to the overlapping and very important needs of our world. This is exactly why we’ve designed this workshop. Our leaders get burnt out because of this constant pull.

Strategy is important to hone in on to guide us in the most chaotic of times. Without the clarity of focus on what initiatives we intend to resource with time, money, and creativity, we are more vulnerable to this burn out that is so prevalent in our culture. The lack of strategy leads to increasing conflict and reducing efficiency and effectiveness. And, it’s important to be intentional about where we spend our energy.

 

Strategy is self-care for the cooperative team.

In order to get the most innovative and relevant strategic plan, we need all hands on deck. Who knows better than those doing the work about what is relevant? It is actually a myth that cooperatives are not as efficient because the collaboration “slows” us down. You don’t need to cut corners here to get movement. In reality, the right, supportive process can make us more efficient than the hierarchical ways while also getting our team on board!

 

Cooperative strategic planning can be abundant, innovative, creative, and even fun!

 

This workshop is for you if sometimes you and your team experience ANY of the following:

  • Too much on your plate and you don’t even know where to start
  • Feeling unfocused and pulled in many directions because everything is the most important thing to work on
  • Some people on your team disagree on where your time should go, so you find your team pulled apart on different projects
  • You know that your team could make more progress toward your goals, but instead you feel a bit stuck, disconnected, and undervalued
  • Your team struggles with how to respond to in-coming game changers to your work
  • You feel that you’re putting out fires constantly
  • You feel frustrated at times and are tempted to simply do what you think is most important because the show must go on

When you have a relevant and cooperative strategic planning process to facilitate prioritization, alignment, and innovation in your teams you can…

  • Facilitate measurable, attainable, relevant, and inspiring goals
  • Foster collective hope, visioning, and dreaming for what’s next
  • Create a path to stronger accountability, transparency, and connection within the team
  • Nurture focused, aligned and clear work plans for manageable and healthy work flows
  • Increase the efficiency, effectiveness and flow of your cooperative’s work together
  • Craft collective intentions and directions based on your values and the political context

In this workshop, we walk you through a collaborative strategic planning method that you can explore with your team to keep you aligned to your goals and visions. You will also gain understanding through tangible demonstrations and examples to replicate within your team. At the end of this workshop you’ll have the tools to facilitate both short and long term cooperative strategic planning.
