Energize and align your team toward a common goal in the time it takes to have a regular staff meeting. Learn how to successfully plan a project, initiative or event in a matter of hours. After taking this course, participants will confidently be able to go from having no direction in a meeting to having a vision, realistic plan, identifying points of contact for completion and a calendar of deliverables with measures for accountability. Accelerated action planning helps groups plan, organize resources and build commitment in a time effective and inspiring way – keeping everyone in the room a part of the plan. This process is especially useful for small teams of 4 – 10 members who are planning an event or project within the next few months.

This course is a six-hour accelerated version of the traditional ToP® Action Planning course taught in the two day ToP® Facilitation Methods training. Participants will learn to: 

  • Analyze the current reality and where success could be seen
  • Maximize group involvement and identify manageable accountability
  • Visualize inspiring, successful results with full participation
  • Create a practical plan with ownership, timelines and measures
  • Produce a comprehensive, high-level action plan in just two hours
  • Receive an action planning tool for a small team to use in developing a high-level plan
  • Create a highly motivated team willing to take action
  • Develop bold, attainable project goals
  • Motivate your team to embrace the plan
