Retreats & Strategic Planning

Now is not the time to put off that retreat or strategic planning session. Now is the time to invest in your people and your future.

During normal times, you would be focused defining and implementing your organization’s strategic direction with in-person meetings. While we’ve all gotten used to video calls and “upperwear,” there’s still a nagging sense that virtual meetings won’t be as effective and you won’t get what you need to drive your organization’s success.

Enter Arudia virtual facilitation.

With the right planning and preparation, your virtual meetings can be even more effective. In addition to leveraging virtual tools, at our core we are coaches, which means we’re not letting anyone off the hook without commitments for deliverables by a time certain, and a tactical plan to get there.

Let us help your board, executive team, or vertical team preserve and build a thriving culture as you set your course for the future.


Position Yourself to Triumph Over Uncertainty

With Arudia involved, you won’t be dusting off your strategic plan five years later, chagrined by its irrelevance. No, your strategic plan will govern tactical action. You’ll be using it to drive financial security grounded in a shrewd assessment of your marketplace, your stakeholders, and the needs you can meet with aplomb.

Let’s do this!

Even our toughest, most self-assured clients admit to us, in the safety of our confidential coaching sessions, that they are more than a little concerned.  We know that. We live it with you. We also know that when the ground is a little unstable, it’s time to create your own luck.  Create your own luck with us by your side, not just cheerleading, but seeing opportunities and connections that inspire your creativity and draw you into a future you drive.

“When written in Chinese, the word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.”  John F. Kennedy, 35th US President

What People Are Saying

Sydney Blair, CEO, Center for Mental Health . . .

Anne has provided numerous elements of facilitation and training with the Center for Mental Health.  Her presence is that of professionalism, knowledge and expertise.  Immediately, she captivated our management group with style and charisma, and thus began a series of training engagements with our organization.  I hadn’t realized the amassed impact of the work of our consultants until a former employee who returned to the agency commented on the energy and culturally changes that has occurred in a relatively short period of time.  We shifted from a mindset of having to do it alone, to one of network, partnership and community support.  Anne’s coaching was transformative in identifying our opportunities for growth, how to effectively evaluate and build on our resources and develop a successful implementation plan.   Management identified more than $700,000 in potential growth by building on what we already do in addition to more than $1.3 million in expansion in other program service areas.  Anne’s targeted focus on growth and expansion was essential for unhinging agency drift and stagnation.  The collective process catapulted our leadership in developing a new paradigm for organizational expansion, personal accountability and galvanized leadership alignment.
