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.
