The road to there – Collaborative Visioning 1-day Workshop

The Road to “THERE” is a 1-day workshop to help create buy-in, increase creative energy, and inspire ownership in an organisation’s plan to win! Studies have shown that when people are actively involved in the thinking and decision-making process, there is a sense of ownership that inspires results that exceed expectations.

As we think 2018 is going to be a pretty volatile year we thought we’d select this as the first session in our new range of fun short courses. This session is designed to provide you with the tools for thinking, planning & collaborating Ideas.

Dates: Friday 9 March
Location: Gosforth Study Centre
Time: 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
Cost: £295 + VAT

This is an open programme so delegates are likely to come from a variety of businesses and different industries. It is designed to suit anyone who needs a bit of direction in determining where to go and how to get there to realise their optimum business opportunities.

What is The Road to There?

The Road to There is a simple tool that takes the fear out of strategic planning, which for many people conjures up images of heated arguments, confusion, unresolved disagreements, hours of circular-reasoning disguised as healthy debate, and for some, the embarrassment of “not knowing how.”

Yet, without a clear and effective plan that lays out a roadmap to the future, and to which team members can buy-in, the organisation creates an environment that is prime for chaos.

How does it work?

“The Road to ‘THERE’” walks individuals and teams through the process of visualising the future and creating a clear roadmap that identifies the objectives, the potential obstacles, and the distance between where you currently are and how far you need to go to get “THERE.” With it are the “Hows” that everyone involved can participate in creating – therefore making it “real” to the individual contributor and inspiring ownership.

What’s involved?

Step 1: Identify “There”
There is your desired state. The level of performance or conditions to which you are willing to commit your actions and intentions to make reality

 Step 2: Identify “Here”
Here represents your current state, describing the conditions as they exist now.

Step 3: The Gap
The Gap is the difference between your current state, “Here” and your desired state, “There”. It tells you how far you must go to reach your destination.

Step 4: Identify Potential Road Blocks
Potential road blocks are obstacles of any kind that may make it difficult, or stand in the way of reaching your desired state of “There,” including people, systems, money, resources, values, attitudes, etc.

Step 5: Brainstorm Mechanisms
The vehicles or actions you and your team believe will take you to where you want to go (There) and ones to which you are willing to commit.

Step 6:
Finalise the Plan!

The course is delivered in a fun and informal way so there are no academic studying or textbooks involved. It can also be delivered to your teams in-house.
