Our Process

Facilitated Strategy Sessions are structured to guide your team through discussions and activities to refine your organization’s strategic goals, and to develop a clear, actionable strategic plan that drives the organization forward. We thrive in highly creative and active meetings that lead to discovery. In preparation, the Ballay Center will meet with you in advance to set an agenda that defines objectives and outcomes, plans activities, and holds space for free-form discussion and reflection.

Our Methods

We are whiteboard heroes who support your Strategy Session with graphic facilitation and recording of important information - all in real time. As facilitators, we are neutral, highly engaged, and attentive to capturing important information. We prompt ideas and focus discussion to understand and provide clarity, and will engage your team in activities that encourage creative problem solving, silo-busting integrative thinking and non-hierarchical collaboration.

Our Spaces

Our primary classroom in the Ballay Center provides 360˚ whiteboards, natural light, and integrated projection/sound for presentations. We find that the best thinking happens when a professional atmosphere encourages active engagement and collaboration. Across the hall is our studio space and our office for adjunct instructors, visiting collaborators, and those working closely in-residence with us.
