Strategy and Senior Team Facilitation
The strategic development of a company or organisation relies on good communications – internally as much as externally. Ensuring that the senior management is clear on the organisation’s strategic goals and communication aims and works well together, is essential in building a solid brand image.
Often, one of the biggest challenges in an organisation is establishing exactly what you want to achieve – which is even more challenging when there are different voices and views within an organisation. An independent, external but trusted advisor can help to identify areas of agreement and help a team to work together to reach agreed aims.
PLMR’s strategic facilitators use proven techniques and an interactive approach to help senior teams understand their current position, the context that they are operating in and the challenges ahead. Together teams can then agree on the most appropriate, targeted messaging and their tactical priorities. Strategic Senior Team Facilitation can be used to assist senior management teams tasked with the development of new strategies or with implementing existing ones. It can help decision makers to agree on clear and concise aims and messaging and explore challenges within the team or the organisation. PLMR’s facilitation sessions are fully tailored to a team’s specific needs and aims. Strategic facilitation can involve a single workshop or meeting or a more complex plan with regular engagement.
PLMR can help senior teams and management to:
- Identify and review major current issues that need to be addressed for the organisation to move forward effectively
- Build and develop relationships within a new team or help to address internal communication challenges
- Develop strategic messaging when making a major announcement or change within an organisation
- Coach/steer decision-makers to plan a response to a changing environment
- Understand and develop stronger relationships with key stakeholders
Our experience is broad, from working closely with small teams, to helping senior leaders in large organisations. We’ve even worked with broad coalitions of separate organisations with a shared objective. We assist and facilitate but do not try to influence or control decisions. Our expertise can help your team meet any challenge.
Phil Rothwell, Policy and Futures Director at TCV:
“In developing our thinking on future public messages for our group PLMR provided an exceptionally valuable facilitated day to look at our options and best fit with our vision and skills. Through a series of exercises we were able to identify from a disparate range of options the landscape of public messages that were most likely to resonate with our potential audiences. They made a complicated task easier, enjoyable and with a great outcome.”
