ToP Strategic Planning

November 5 & 6 – 8:30 am – 5:00 pm CDT


Ready to help organizations, coalitions, and communities move beyond action plans to navigate more complex change?

In this course, you’ll weave together individual ToP methods into a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to help groups answer their most important strategic questions.

Learn to help groups:

  • Creatively visualize and come to agreement around their ideal future
  • Honestly confront their most stubborn blocks to success
  • Align around powerful, innovative shared intentions
  • Define measurable goals
  • Commit to accountable plans of action

Strategic planning doesn’t have to be intimidating… we’ll show you how to break it into manageable pieces so you can trust the process and the group! This model of strategic planning can be used by teams, organizations, collaboratives, and communities—the framework is even helpful for couples, families and individuals.

ToP Strategic Planning will contribute to your ability to understand strategy and think strategically in all areas of your own life. If you have taken Top Facilitation Methods, this is the ideal course to advance your mastery journey in these methods.

“The ToP Strategic Planning course provides a well-defined, concrete method to guide a strategic planning process while still building in flexibility to accommodate the unique needs and dynamics of the group.”

-Lesley Reeder
Senior Consultant in Healthcare

“Simply amazing. Totally participatory by design without having to silence or purposely amplify the participants. It is a structured process that if followed will prove to be successful.”

-Ian Johnson, MBA
Workforce Development Director & Independent Consultant

“This training provides the framework for doing strategic planning that includes all voices from an organization – from the CEO to the boots on the ground – and values all voices equally. I like that groups are encouraged to think big first and then work from that towards a plan for how to get there. It’s a creative, barrier-busting method for strategic planning.”
