Strategic Planning

Aligning Purpose, Principles, People, and Processes for Tangible Change

We approach strategic planning with your mission in mind. Strategic planning is the most important activity you and your team will do, and we’re here to help you do it right. Your strategic plan should be your roadmap toward your vision (and mission), outlining how you intend to make change happen.

A Comprehensive Approach to Strategic Planning

The Institute of Collaborative Leadership (ICL) understands that successful strategic planning requires a holistic approach that considers every aspect of an organization. Our Strategic Planning Facilitation & Coaching is designed to engage your whole team and community in envisioning and designing a plan that aligns your people, principles, programs, resources, and operational processes to achieve tangible change – your purpose. Our strategic planning services are tailored to support municipal governments, public agencies and networks, nonprofit organizations, schools, school districts and state education units, public housing authorities, and more.
