Communicating Vision and Strategy

Faculty: Martin Oduor Otieno

Cost: KSh 25,000

Course Dates: October 6, 2018 or December 1, 2018 

The words “vision” and “strategy” often evoke as much terror as they do inspiration. We tend to think only of legendary CEOs and heads of state – Bob Collymore, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela. Yet the truth is, learning to articulate a compelling vision and strategy aren’t just for the legends. It’s also for every emerging leader who wants to have a deep and lasting impact on their organization. That’s the theme of this highly practical one-day workshop, which will address a series of relevant issues to try to demystify vision and strategy.

Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of these twin challenges, and with skills, they can use to more clearly and powerfully articulate vision and strategy. Among other things, participants will discover elements of a compelling vision and strategy; how vision and strategy connect with values and tactics; how to get colleagues to buy into your vision; and how to turn strategy into reality for your team.

The workshop will be led by Martin Oduor Otieno, a former CEO and longtime leadership consultant, who has worked with scores of executives on these very issues. Mr. Otieno is the former longtime top executive of Kenya Commercial Bank, a tenure that culminated in his serving as Chief Executive Office for six years. A former Permanent Secretary of Kenya’s Ministry of Finance and Planning, Mr. Otieno also has served as a director on the boards of Deloitte East Africa, East African Breweries, Ltd., and British American Tobacco Kenya.
