  • Retreats and Workshops - SGR has extensive experience in successfully facilitating retreats and workshops for elected officials and executive teams. Retreats and workshops are available on the following topics by e-mailing :

Strategic Visioning
Organizations often suffer from either great visions that never become reality, or infinite plans that do not amount to anything of significance.  For that reason, SGR focuses on the more practical approach of Strategic Visioning in which we begin with a proprietary process for helping your team define what you want your organization to become, and then we help you develop a practical set of strategies for making your vision a reality. 

Goal Setting
When your organization knows where it wants to go, but needs a structured process to ensure that you are doing the right things in the right ways at the right time to make your vision a reality, a goal setting retreat can help.  It will define practical and measurable processes and steps for moving forward.  A goal setting process is doomed to fail if it is undertaken prior to a visioning process, but when a clear vision is in place, an effective goal setting process is essential to making your vision become a reality.

Team Building
Quite often, a city council, board or executive team knows where they want to go, and they know what needs to be done to get there; but an absence of effective teamwork prevents them from making the kind of progress that is expected and warranted.  Paraphrasing Pogo, “they have met the enemy and it is them”.   SGR’s team building process is designed to identify obstacles to effective team work, deal with internal conflicts in an open and forthright manner, and develop a set of operating practices that engenders a healthy team environment that can translate good intentions into great results.

Understanding and Maximizing the Health of Your Organization
Through implementation and interpretation of various assessment and evaluation tools, SGR stands ready to process and increase your organizational health. Many of these assessments can be implemented on-line saving valuable time while yielding a valid result.
