Strategic Vision – Strategic Planning Retreat

Proactive Planning + Team Building Experience

Strategic Vision Summit

Time to engage your team in handling the big questions? Time to define key initiatives for your organization?

About Strategic Planning:

Traditional planning involves looking at problems based on what we already know.

Yet, the best strategic planning highlights the true nature of an issue, free from our subjective slant, liberated from ego-bound constraints (such as positionality), and unfettered from habitual, blocked ways of perceiving, exploring and processing information. The best strategic planning retreats help your group identify big goals and visions, the obstacles, and the best paths for achieving these goals.

A classic way of thinking about the strategic planning process is this:

  • Situation – Where are we right now?
  • Target – Where do we want to be? What are our goals and visions? What are the possibilities for achieving these goals?
  • PathHow can we get there?

Collaboration: Strategic planning should be collaborative. Therefore, our strategic planning executive retreats are facilitated in a way that unites your team rather than divides. It’s crucial that your facilitator is not only academically astute in the topic of strategic planning, but that your facilitator is also highly trained in the kind of group facilitation that unites the highly-charged and opinionated leaders that often rise to the top.

About our Lead Facilitator: Sioux Messinger

  • Former Group Facilitator at Stanford University
  • Sioux was also Clinical Faculty in the School of Medicine at University of California, San Francisco and taught at other graduate and undergraduate education institutions.
  • Sioux completed group facilitation training under the direction of John R. Hurley, a nationally known scholar tenured at Michigan State University who studied leadership in groups, and interpersonal perceptions of self and other.
  • As Founder and Lead Facilitator of Cream of the Crop Leaders, Sioux develops and delivers top transformational experiences.
  • See Sioux’s LinkedIn


There are different models for guiding your leadership group through this process; depending on your situation, some are more appropriate than others. We’ll guide you and your team in choosing the right strategic planning team building retreat for your current needs.

Our recommendation: Create a strategic planning business retreat that is BOTH immensely clarifying and team building.
