Facilitation for Clarification, Focused Action and Results

 

  • Problem Solving Facilitation

Difficult problems become a lot easier to solve when you have a committed group of people generating ideas on how to solve them. Larry is an expert in the process of stimulating out-of-the-box creative thinking and winnowing it down to clear, focused actionable ideas that the group is committed to achieve.  His engaging style gets everyone involved and engaged. Business leaders leave Larry’s facilitated meetings knowing they’ve truly leveraged the “wisdom of the group” to identify and solve the key business problems and have a clear action plan to follow.

 

  • Strategic Planning Facilitation – “Focus on Results – A Four Stage Planning Process”

Larry Freeborg’s signature strategic planning process brings clarity to issues and opportunities impacting business leaders today. (click to request a PDF explaining the Four Stage Planning Process in more detail)

Participants learn the importance of working “On” the business as well as “In” the business. Facilitated sessions are designed to help Teams identify and capitalize on key opportunities, and move through “stuck’ areas blocking them from achieving the results desired.

One important benefit of Larry’s facilitated planning sessions is that employees leave committed to implement something they’ve helped create. Employees’ involvement in Larry’s facilitated sessions creates a commitment that business leaders long for.

Clarity and accuracy are imperative if you want to maximize your efforts. We believe that an accurate plan poorly implemented is more successful than a vague or generic plan implemented with brilliant precision.  The focus of the facilitated session is to bring clarity, accuracy and focus to the plan.

Through a disciplined program of idea generation and action plan creation, Larry will help the group develop specific actions for results with clear accountabilities and target dates.

The next step critical to maximizing the planning effort is “intense implementation” of the agreed upon plans. With regular leadership follow-up and support, the involved, committed Team goes forward with great energy and creates extraordinary results. (click for a PDF explaining the Four Stage Planning Process in more detail)
