Execution – Turning ideas into action post retreat
Following a powerful planning process, cultural initiative, or retreat, teams often walk away feeling good and after a while, all the good feelings, ideas, and plans have disappeared.
At Indiggo Associates we provide an approach that enables organizations to turn ideas into commitments and commitments into action.
Our approach to effective execution involves integrating the organization's core identity into all key aspects of strategic planning, leadership, culture, and operations.
We focus on:
Goals and priorities at all levels
Alignment around expectations
Our goal is to focus and align already existing structures and processes wherever possible, not create new ones. This focus creates congruent action throughout the organization inspiring people to fulfill the organization's purpose and accomplish its vision.
