Strategic Visioning involves designing and facilitating a process for a group which applies collaborative creative engagement toward creating a definition of a desired future and an actionable roadmap towards its fulfillment. After addressing the challenge and dialoguing in various forms, the final group outcomes may be strategic plans, often expressed in visual maps. Below listed are a few examples of such strategic visioning sessions, these are usually part of a longer client engagement that may also include coaching and support with organizational design and leadership.

Strategic Visioning with Austrian Educators
I supported this group of Montessori teachers K-12 with several sessions to help them coordinate approach and curriculum throughout for the various class levels. The first session was focused on defining a strategically important theme (a "living mindfulness practice") that they wanted to highlight throughout the school year and across the various levels and class curricula. Other sessions involved dialogues within collaborating teams about how to bring a mindfulness practice to their teachings and to student learning, and how to measure success. The outcomes included concrete action plans that expressed their intent and guided their actions.
