  • SLI Strategic Planning and Creating Vision & Values Workshops

    Enlightened leadership understands that individual’s who understand their organization’s vision, mission and values generally connect them to their own personal purpose and values. This, in turn, leads to a higher level of commitment, motivation and satisfaction. Our workshop engages your team in co-creating the future - both the why and the how!
    Our Strategic Planning Workshop - addresses the 'what' questions ... it takes the vision of the future, weighs it alongside the cold, hard facts of present reality, identifies the gaps and then creates ‘gap closure” and opportunity strategies.

  • SLI 'X' Factor Facilitation

    The role of the workshop facilitator is to provide an environment where participants can learn with ease. This workshop will provide new and seasoned facilitators with innovative tools and techniques to ensure maximum participant interaction, learning and transfer. By focusing on the modes of facilitation, understanding individual learner styles and the importance of accelerated learning, facilitators will not only be proficient, they will possess the “X” factor upon completion of this course.

  • Managing Organizational Transitions Workshop

    Fostering the capacity to implement genuine change is increasingly important as competition becomes global. Research across sectors suggests that the failure rate of change initiatives – reengineering projects, mergers and acquisitions, implementation of strategic plans and of IT systems – is a shocking 70%. Interestingly, the most commonly cited influencer to determining the success or failure of change initiatives is people. Why? When people are not adequately engaged with change, they resist it. However, when people identify and let go of what must be left behind and can build meaning and reach out for what is new, they become capable of initiating and generating sustainable change. This course teaches managers how to manage the internal transition process, the human process that has been repeatedl identified as the missing link in failed change efforts in business.
