Team Facilitation

Executives, regardless of their experience and professionalism, are influenced by underlying political and emotional factors. Vision Quest Consulting offers group facilitation and strategic planning sessions to help senior teams develop and launch strategic business initiatives more effectively and efficiently than they can do by themselves. We align team members from different functional areas and help them work together as an equally-committed, cohesive unit.

Strategic Planning Off-Sites

Almost all management teams spend a day to a week every year away from their regular responsibilities to plan for the future. These strategic off-site meetings are designed in partnership with our facilitator and your CEO or Executive Business Leader. A successful strategic planning off-site can:

  • Align executives
  • Galvanize corporate performance
  • Strengthen the company’s position in its industry
  • Explore strategic issues in depth
  • Produce a set of strategic priorities
  • Produce expansive conversations about broad strategic intiatives

Meeting Management

Outside facilitation of senior team meetings and strategy sessions ensures that:

  • Team members communicate and collaborate effectively
  • Groups are aligned on key business goals
  • Critical decisions are reached
  • Roadblocks in working relationships are diminished or eliminated
  • Short and long-term strategies are implemented

Conducting effective meetings saves time and money, and minimizes power struggles and department-centric thinking. Meeting facilitation fosters creative and innovative solutions to long-term issues and challenges.

Team Building

Having an executive team that works well together is essential to company growth and success. Vision Quest Consulting offers team building sessions for executive and management teams to open lines of communication, break down silos, reduce unnecessary relationship blocks, and increase morale and camaraderie.
