Strategy meetings done right
Slow down to prepare for a fast world
Today, companies operate in an extremely fast and volatile environment, which often makes it difficult for its leadership to distinguish essentials from clutter. As a company it is important to renew yourself every now and then in order to stay ahead and focused. At 48HoursUnplug we believe that a successful strategy meeting meets the following requirements:
-Disconnect to connect
Connected devices are a blessing to do business and stay connected, but a curse when it comes to performing creative, problem solving and visionary tasks like… strategy meetings! So step out of your comfort zone, put those devices away and focus on the task at hand. Disconnect to connect with your team to prepare for the future!
-Team first, strategy second
Often strategy meetings are slowed down by interpersonal dynamics and egos. Therefore we believe that a strategy meeting should always start with team reinforcement before jumping to the strategy chapter. Once that’s done, the strategy should become a walk in the park.
-Sit back and relax
It’s difficult to enjoy a party you are organising yourself. Same goes for strategy meetings. Nothing better than a team of experts that guide you through the process of team bonding and strategy development.
