The Strategic Huddle: Focused Sessions to Align. Activate. Advance Your Business
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached,
don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
According to the definition, a huddle is used in sports and “is an action of a team gathering together, usually in a tight circle, to strategize, motivate or celebrate.” Canadian, American, Association football, cricket and Australian rules football all use a form of a huddle during games/matches.
In business, a huddle offers many opportunities to strategize, plan, motivate, communicate and build teamwork between teams. I have successfully implemented the huddle concept in a large not-for-profit with 5 different departments. Through daily huddles, the teams are more integrated, focused on top priorities, and more proactive. The daily huddle has become the hub from which operations flow.
You may be thinking I’m not on a sports team so what’s this have to do with me?
- I am a solo-preneur and juggling all the tasks and responsibilities of my business.
- I’m overwhelmed and lacking focus – I want to get back on track so I reach my goals.
- I’m stuck in my middle-manager role – it’s time for a change.
- I want to take my business into new areas but not sure how.
- I want to motivate myself to get more out of my career and find time for life.
Well— Strategic Huddle Sessions are for you!
They combine the key attributes of the sporting huddle and offer you an opportunity to gather together with me to strategize, plan, and move forward in a more innovative and effective way.
Unlike a traditional coaching session, these 90 minute strategic huddles are working sessions. I’m not there to just listen and ask more questions. Yes, I do ask a lot of questions, but I will also help you cut to the chase and find the right solution, approach or resource to make things happen quickly. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves, take out the paper and pencil, computer or tablet and join me to dig deep, think outside the box and take action! Where we find a gap, we’ll brainstorm and problem-solve together – that’s the fun part!
So, step up, make the decision and you won’t be disappointed.
I have gained so much more focus for myself and my new business – even my friends are noticing that I’m calmer. I’m psyched about what can be achieved. Boosting my income is top priority and I already see that happening within 3 months. Joyce Sagi – Disaster & Associates LLC
Before Your Session
Like any sporting event, you must come prepared to the Huddle. This means taking time to really look at the issues and what your goal(s) are. To assist you in this process, I will send you a short questionnaire. Your responses will help me zero in so we maximize the benefit you gain.
Your Strategic Huddle Session
We will look at where you are now. What your dreams and goal are for the coming quarter and beyond. What is happening now and in the near future that can impact or deactivate you plans. You set the direction and I’m there to help you through coaching, exploration, brainstorming, and more!
Knowing where we are starting from will allow us to create the plans that will map out what you want to accomplish and how you will navigate through the maze of challenges, obstacles and opportunities – everything from day-to-day operations, identifying and accessing the right resources at the right time, and more!
Nothing can happen to stretch and achieve those goals and dreams unless you hit the accelerator and take action!
When staying still is not an option, we will help you ensure your plan keeps you advancing with forward momentum. Growth is an advancement of a seed to a plant that provides food or other materials used for many purposes. Together we will take your seed of an idea, surround it with the right systems and resources so it too can grow and develop to be of use to you, your clients, team or superiors and your support network. We will identify where you add value and how to reap the benefits along the way.
If you are the CEO of your life, career or business these Strategic Huddle sessions are for you!
