I would encourage any CEO to go through this process. In a very short time, we were able to clarify our expectations and unify the staff around common goals. Now, we have consensus about the next steps we need to take and performance metrics that will let us know when we reach our goals. We’ve really moved forward as an organization.
LRI helped us experience a real change in the way that we do planning and resolve problems. It made it possible for us to say exactly what we wanted to say, and for others to hear exactly what we said. Looking back, I wonder why we didn’t do this before.
We loved working with LRI. Their whole approach is results-driven, and their consultants really know their stuff. It was amazing how much we got done. Our executive team now has a richer and clearer understanding of what we need to do to succeed.
Based on their work with public broadcasting CEOs, LRI’s expertise is a must for any organization that wants and needs to resolve tough issues.
During the summer of 2015 we began a strategic planning process with LRI, specifically with Karin Bloomer. This was our first attempt at an encompassing five-year plan. I was amazed by how quickly Karin assimilated our culture, processes, and critical priorities. Karin expertly pushed us through the conversations we needed to have – some of them not easy. I’m happy to report we are extremely pleased with the result. We completed the project on time – and on budget. I highly recommend Karin for future engagements.
