Strategic Planning Workshops

Visually works with boards and leadership, executive and management teams across New Zealand to facilitate planning workshops in a very special way.

Whether a small, large or corporate business, community organisation or not-for-profit, we facilitate planning workshops that are:

  • Structured
  • Focused
  • Creative
  • Positive
  • Fun and engaging
  • Inclusive
  • Visually stimulating
  • Results focused.

Our strategic planning workshops use powerful planning processes which are relaxed and interactive, with a visual recorder ‘graphing’ your future in colourful hand-drawn images and a process facilitator guiding you with questions to catalyse your thinking as you create your plan. Then our expert facilitators map out the steps that you decide you need to take to put your plan into action. It’s energising and empowering, with your team in the driver’s seat.

Individual Planning

Interactionz was originally drawn to graphic and visual facilitation to assist us in the planning processes associated with our mentoring work. We quickly learned that ‘graphing’ someone’s vision of the way they’d like their life, or business, to be, added hugely to the process. It helped them to dig deeper and to visualise more clearly what was important to them. Just as importantly, it helped the people around them to understand and support the goals. It was quickly becoming apparent that it had far greater potential.

PATH, MAPS and FOCUS are the robust visual planning tools we use, and that are embraced by people up and down New Zealand, and beyond. As long-standing processes, they are proven graphic facilitation tools for ‘big picture’ and whole-of-life planning for individuals, and Interactionz also uses these tools with groups. Each tool involves a co-facilitated process to develop a comprehensive plan in pictorial form that explores an individual’s aspiration for a good life and identifies action steps to achieve positive and possible outcomes.

The graphic facilitation process means that these are accessible planning tools for all persons, regardless of communication abilities.

Visual planning for individuals is often purchased by organisations, as well as individuals, for all sorts of reasons and different people. Here are a few:

  • Professional sports people – still in their profession or retired, to help them develop life goals outside of their sporting life
  • People changing career, to help them explore a different future
  • School leavers, to support them to discover what they want from life
  • People going through change or restructure in organisations, to support them to see their good life beyond the organisation
  • People looking for direction and purpose.

Change Management

As you cannot over-communicate when you are asking your organisation to change, and your team will most likely never be 100% happy with communication, it may pay to look outside what you usually do and work more creatively. Communication is one of the toughest issues and creating shared meaning, one of the cornerstones of effective communication, can be a challenge.

Planning in a group, being facilitated using visual tools, is a collaborative way to work which engages every participant and produces an excellent communication tool at the end. Introducing illustration, either live during meetings and events, or by the creation of infographics, are other ways to communicate to a range of people in a way that will resonate with everyone. Imagery is very compelling!

Strategy Communication

Effectively communicating strategy is key to gaining a shared understanding and vision within a team or between stakeholders. Choosing to support your strategy communication with a visual representation fosters engagement, clarity and inspiration.

No matter how complex or wordy your message, we can illustrate your strategy or key communication messages, helping your audience grasp quickly what might take hundreds of words to explain.

Team and Stakeholder Engagement

Engaging stakeholders early will often ensure success of a project or organisational change, and so what are the best ways to do that?

Involving people in processes where they are included, can contribute and collaborate, is a way of aligning everyone - which can often be like steering an ocean liner! Working visually can be a fantastic strategy for developing effective stakeholder engagement and is an excellent way to foster engagement for projects, and aligning project goals with business goals.

Our facilitation team utilises a number of sound and powerful planning processes to assist with team and stakeholder engagement, and we also provide customised facilitation workshops, catered to the needs of the business.

Vision and Values

A vision and values statement is a tool to help an organisation accomplish what it has set out to do and helps provide a framework for strategy, focus and decision making. We can help you to present your vision and values in an engaging way through the creation of a visual document and infographics or live through a facilitated workshop.

At Visually we work with you to refresh and update your organisations vision and values in a fun engaging and captivating way. We can facilitate a workshop with your team to visually create how your vision and values translate into actions. The end result is a graphic poster that your team has co-created.
