“This really helps to create the language and vernacular that the organization can work with. It really helps your strategy come alive.”
Totally turned the way I looked at strategy planning
Mykola Takzey | Founder, Braintuition
Going through Strategy Tools Global Coaches was truly life changing. It totally turned the way I looked at strategy planning — the combination of Industry Shifts Map and Strategy Intro became my primary tool when helping large and medium enterprises mitigate the risks and utilize business opportunities. Most importantly, the STGC reshapes your mindset, makes you better equipped for today’s fast-changing world and adds extra agility to strategy planning & execution. I don’t think there is anything else more important than these nowadays.
Unique & powerful resource for strategists of our time
James van der Westhuizen | CEO, Knowhouse
As the world changed and became smaller, faster and less certain, everything changed but somehow strategy facilitation got left behind. What the Strategy Tools portfolio does is bring strategy facilitation into the new world in a powerful, simple, accessible way. A unique and powerful resource for the strategists of our time.
Fantastic way to improve my strategic thinking & approach
Harvey Wade | Founder, Innovate21
The STGC program was a fantastic way to improve my strategic thinking and approach. By going deep into the ST tools, being challenged to explain them and how they are used, the tools are now engrained into my approach, they are far more than tools. The program also demonstrated the importance of preparation, both for delivery, but also in general discussion. It’s enabled my strategic thinking to be sharper, leading to closer relationships with my clients.
