Lighthouse principals have over 50 years of experience in helping small- to medium-sized organizations define their strategic directions. That includes a proven record of facilitating small and large groups through difficult, contentious, or challenging conversations that are often part of this process.
What makes us successful?
- Thoughtful and thorough planning. A good strategic planning process or workshop starts with good preparation. That includes a clear understanding of the group’s or organization’s shared expectations and goals and then designing processes to help meet both of those. Also required is good execution. Running a successful process or workshop requires patience, clarity and a balanced viewpoint. Our workshops and strategic planning processes are designed to encourage a diversity of views that will drive the conversation forward.
- Organize. We can help organize your event or workshop—from site coordination and set-up to marketing, promotion and event graphics. We know how to do it and do it well.
- Implement. Lighthouse can help your group/organization set criteria for choosing its priorities; identify its critical issues; and determine the financial and managerial resources required for maximum organizational efficiency and effectiveness. We can even help implement the plan, whether through a long-term management relationship or helping implement short-term projects.
- Follow-up. We know how important it is to accurately capture the outcomes of and build on the momentum created during the process or workshop. So, we immediately summarize key elements of the conversation and help identify those quick “early actions” that, if taken, can provide you with immediate rewards. The final report? We and our clients often see that not as the end of the process, but rather as the beginning of a longer term relationship—one where communication and follow-up with our clients is a standard part of how we do business.
