Celebrating 25 years of building custom training solutions

Management consulting and strategic planning

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there.” says The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. A facilitated strategic plan is the organization’s critical first step in creating the road map which lays out the vision and direction for the journey.

The Fairwinds Training professionals will:

  • Guide in assessing your current situation
  • Help in establishing clear priorities
  • Aid in setting smart measurable goals
  • Assist in the development of long-term strategies

These efforts will be designed and facilitated in a systematic process that helps both you and your organization increase the performance, productivity, and accountability of your team.

Organizational Planning

Fairwinds Training and Development professionals assist their clients in the integration of human resources planning within the existing strategic plan. To that end, the Fairwinds consultants help to assess the gaps in the organization’s current capacity against future needs to achieve the vision, mission and business goals of the organization. Our consultants help to design, develop, and deliver programs (e.g. role and job definitions, workforce planning, development of organizational charts, career path planning; competency development etc.) that can help close the gaps.

Strategic Team Leadership

Most workplaces operate within a team environment and depend on the strength and success of those teams to achieve outcomes. Successful teams commit to produce results that seem impossible, and they do this in such a way that the team members and team leaders both experience pride and a feeling of belonging.

Using a facilitated process, we examine and evaluate the ways in which teams are created, formed, managed, and led. Much can be learned from identifying the strengths of a fully functional team and the pitfalls of a dysfunctional one. The rules of engagement that the team agree to, are the guiding principles for team commitment.
The Fairwinds Training and Development professionals work with their clients to examine the best leadership model for the ongoing growth and success of the organization or its departmental teams.
