You want to run a planning session with your #board
. Your goal is to identify operational and substantive priorities for 2019.
What if you told a professional facilitator what you needed, and she worked with you to design a fantastic, engaging, three-hour agenda? What if she facilitated it so you could participate fully? What if she surveyed participants, receiving results up to two days beforehand? And what if staff and board arrived at the session to see and discuss a wall-sized, hand-drawn visual summary of results?
That's what I did for the Dane County Board of Supervisors last week.
One participant said, "I love seeing how all the pieces connect. It helps me see gaps and possibilities."
The issues are complex. Jail diversion, capacity, and criminal justice reform. Flooding and water quality. Economic development and affordable, equitable, workforce housing. ---------------
Part of the unique value of VisuaLeverage arises out of a combination of skills and experience. Deep experience with complex issues, work across multiple sectors (health care, tech, academia, government, K12, arts), co-designing agendas with clients for small or large-group facilitation, survey research skills and experience, qualitative research skills, and strategic thinking. Oh, and art. Visual representation of all that, because it makes a difference.
