While the executive team may be responsible for setting the grand plan for the organization, you are challenged with creating action plans for the next month, quarter, or year. We can help you do that.
In most team-based environments, managers work hard to involve their teams in the planning process. Doing this is easier said than done.
If you, as the manager, lead a meeting to get people’s input; some employees will not want to say what they are thinking for fear of contradicting what they think you want to hear. If that’s the case, you’ve got a problem.
If there’s a disagreement and you break the tie, you are viewed as playing favorites. Another huge problem.
A meeting facilitator keeps you on track
We can help by leading these planning sessions for you. That way, you can participate more fully without dominating. Also, team members have someone encouraging them to speak up.
A neutral facilitator can keep everyone focused and on track. We can also make sure that vague suggestions are turned into specific actions.
If previous attempts to involve your team in the planning process have not met your expectations, give us a shot. We think you’ll like the results.
