Members of an association’s leadership team will bring a variety of leadership experience and training to their positions. The proficiency of an organization’s leadership team depends on the skills of the individuals who are serving in the various leadership roles. It is important for an organization to ensure that everyone serving in a leadership position share the same philosophies and values when it comes to making decisions and performing in a leadership role. For this reason, Roger offers customized programs allowing an association to tailor its leadership training to the needs of the team and the resources available.
Strategic Plan Facilitation
Roger believes that organizations must first define their mission statement before they can effectively develop a strategic plan. Roger guides organizations to develop measurable goals that can be implemented and evaluated, rather than developing aspirational goals that “sound nice” but are not functional. Roger’s work in the area of strategic planning is guided by his belief that an effective strategic plan is one that every member can read, understand, and implement. Roger’s many years of facilitating group meetings and strategic planning sessions have given him an understanding of and respect for the role of a professional facilitator. When facilitating a strategic planning team, Roger provides the guidelines and direction required to create and maintain a productive working environment. He also respects the crucial fact that as an objective facilitator, he helps a team navigate the planning process without attempting to influence the outcome arrived at by the group. In order for an organization’s plan to be truly representative of its membership, its planning team must include members at large, as well as staff and volunteer leaders. Roger is skilled at working with group members who enter the planning with a skeptical, cautious, or negative attitude.
In addition to facilitating strategic planning retreats, Roger works with associations in facilitating meetings that address issues such as problem solving, conflict resolution, change implementation, and resource allocation. As an independent third party, an external facilitator can create an environment in which people focus on solving problems in an atmosphere that is non-threatening, and ensures that everyone’s opinions are heard and respected.
