1-day VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Ignite Strategy!



“Often organizations pursue the wrong changes—especially in complex and fast-moving environments, where decisions about what to transform in order to remain competitive can be hasty or misguided. Before worrying about how to change, executive teams need to figure out what to change—in particular, what to change first.” – Harvard Business Review


Business strategy is both critical and often elusive. In our quest to develop thriving organizations that serve our stakeholders, we often find ourselves asking how we:


    • Develop the most advantageous, current, and effective strategy
    • Ensure our strategy is authentically embedded and leveraged
    • Help our employees to personalize and live our strategy


This workshop will provide a framework and process for developing intentional, aligned, and people-centered strategy that your employees will own. Team Tipton’s change experts will lead participants through specific processes and provide tools that can be used to shape, design, operationalize, and ignite strategy in your own organizations.
