  • Is your organisation brilliant at making plans, but less good at implementing them?
  • Do your initiatives sometimes get stuck in silos and conflicts?
  • Is complexity killing the speed needed to keep up with volatile environments?
  • Do your people crave structure in adapting to change?

Treat yourself to a day with colleagues and professionals gathering fresh ideas about enhancing your strategy execution – a much overlooked field compared to strategy development.  Discover where traditional approaches have failed and what to put in their place by applying Solution Focus and Mark´s new concept of Host Leadership.
