Retreat Facilitation & Team Alignment
ACA offers facilitation for strategy meetings and retreats - from day-long sessions to multi-day programs. We build teams' capacities to leverage Leadership Moments for effective change and lasting outcomes.
Together, we’ll prepare you and your team for what we’re about to embark upon. Usually this involves consultative conversations pre-retreat and some degree of pre-work for those who plan to attend. We'll work with you to think strategically about how to deploy yourself as a change agent within the meeting. This way, you are neither a target nor a scapegoat but instead an invaluable catalyst. Together, we’ll ensure change is the inevitable outcome of our work.
Our goal is to facilitate a process that allows actionable next steps to come from within. How to know if you need this:
If there’s a strategic plan that’s not being implemented (perhaps created by other consultants and sitting unused and undiscussed in a lengthy deck).
If you or your people are having same conversations without any change.
If you’re launching a new product or workflow and need to amass more investment and buy-in to implement.
Strategic advising - often paired with team alignment work or coaching - supports senior teams to accelerate and sustain the impact of large-scale change, organizational change initiatives, strategic planning and multi-stakeholder initiatives.
This is work is creating allies to accompany you as you approach key inflection points, important decisions and milestones. If there is something big on the horizon - a merger or acquisition, a lay off, or other significant project - we can help you manage the naturally occurring challenges that arise with moments of change.
This way you’ll have the ability to see the Leadership Moments as they arise for yourself and your team. You’ll also gain the ability to navigate them without missing pivotal opportunities for leverage and impact. By taking advantage of key in-the-moment occasions to decrease friction and increase buy-in, we’ll create less isolation and marginalization and greater chances of success.
Our goal is to de-risk change and without neutralizing impact. How to know if you need this:
If your team is feeling isolated as the inflection point approaches and risk greater marginalization if the right action isn’t taken in time.
If you don’t have allies or partners and you risk diminished or undermined contribution if you’re unable to navigate key interpersonal dynamics in a timely fashion.
If your team is not aligned and you’re in between two opposing points of view that need to move forward cohesively.
