Facilitation - Strategic Planning Sessions, Design

RDC Group supports its clients with strategic planning advice and the design and facilitation of effective strategic leadership team retreats. Our experience as members of senior management teams means we understand key questions that need to be asked and what high performing senior leadership teams look like. Using a variety of techniques to identify the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities, we work directly with senior teams to help them align strategy and leadership in order to deliver on their organisation’s goals and objectives. We have a proven track record in helping Chief Executives and their teams align priorities with Strategic, and Long-term Plans as well as helping clients build the culture, values and performance they aspire to create within their organisations. Normally this all starts with a free and frank conversation which we offer at no charge.
