In-person Strategic Doing training is back! Cue the Etta James song – after a year of saying, “Is it time yet? Is it time?” we think it is, finally, time. We’ve scheduled our first off-campus, open registration 2.5-day Strategic Doing training for July 14-16 in Chicagoland. We’ve been delighted by how well technology has allowed us to keep providing high-quality learning experiences over the last year – and we know that for some people, online may continue to be the mode of choice – but we’re very excited about the chance to be in a (physical) room with a group of new Strategic Doing learners.
As a participant in this training, you’ll receive Strategic Doing: Ten Skills for Agile Leadership, a Practitioners’ Field Guide (not available except at a practitioner training), and a Trail Map, a tool to help you guide conversations in your Strategic Doing workshops – sessions in which a group is co-creating a strategy to address a complex challenge. You’ll also have lifetime access to an online library of resources. And now, you’ll also receive an “electronic credential” (sometimes called a badge) – post it on your LinkedIn profile, your website, or anywhere else you want to share your newly-acquired skills.
We’ll be at the Northern Illinois University campus in Naperville, just west of Chicago and easily accessible from either O’Hare or Midway airport. There are a number of hotels nearby, and the training environment itself will be modified to be mindful of COVID-19 precautions. The training starts on Wednesday morning and wraps up mid-day on Friday so you can be home for the weekend.
If you’ve been waiting for your chance to learn how to help groups quickly form collaborations, identify strategic outcomes, and move into action immediately – well, now’s your chance to move into action immediately.
