The world has changed, and your old school way of leading your planning session may not work anymore.

Your business needs to adapt.

You need a transformative, fresh plan that builds the future that you imagined for your business. You need solid strategies that all your teams actually believe in and can execute.

But that’s impossible if you're spending the entire planning session balancing the group dynamics, organizing materials, taking down notes, managing conversations & trying to get employees to open up.

Your job is to participate in the discussion. Your job is to use your knowledge of your industry and business to lead your teams to winning plans.

You can only do your job well if you hand over facilitation to someone else.

You know the goals you want your business to achieve. The problem is the how.

  • You are spending too much time prepping to facilitate the session instead of preparing yourself to have robust strategic discussions
  • Inexperienced facilitators run out of time with an incomplete plan and getting the team back together with all their crazy schedules is next to impossible
  • You don’t know the right questions to ask to draw out new perspectives & get to the root of problems
  • You avoid having difficult conversations from the fear of creating conflict
  • You think you leave with a good plan and don't understand why it never gets done. Quarter after quarter after quarter.....
  • You aren't questioning the validity of legacy decisions and biases about your organization and market
  • You're struggling to manage difficult personalities and deal with heightened emotions
  • Your employees defer to your opinion and are afraid of expressing unconventional ideas
  • You're suffering from low participation in your sessions and have difficulty gaining consensus
  • You get caught in a loop of the same-old ideas and don't have anyone to break your patterns
  • You have too many ideas and no way to prioritize the best ones for your company
  • You're unable to form a concrete action plan and your resources always fall short
  • You are not able to get your team totally aligned and committed to the plan
  • You fall short on assigning responsibilities to every individual and departmental plans fall out of sync

Don't waste your planning sessions creating plans that you never execute. Hire a Rhythm facilitator instead.

Where do you find your plan post-session?

Written on big easel pads and rolled up under your desk? Is it on your hard drive? Never shared with the company? Never broken down? Stowed away on a folder in your computer never to be touched again?

Don't let your precious planning sessions go to waste. Build and execute the best plan you will ever have, with experts guiding your entire process.

A Rhythm facilitator will help you—

Create a custom agenda that clarifies your objectives for the planning session.

Your Rhythm facilitator will help you set the right goals and expectations for the meeting, so you and your teams know the outcomes that make it a successful session.

We'll build out the scope, criteria and the discussion points so you can come in and get right to business.

Prep for the planning session and make sure you're ready with all meeting materials.

Don't waste your team's time preparing content material, ensuring setup is correct and materials are in place, testing technology and sending invites.

Let the Rhythm facilitator handle the logistics while you focus on the actual strategy that will grow your business.

Review your previous performance and take stock of where you stand.

We will help you assess and explore your current conditions. Find out what’s working well, what’s broken, how the market has changed, what’s temporary and what has changed forever—and then build a plan that gears you for success.

Create a safe environment for honest discussions and manage conflict as it arises.

Don't let people problems seep into important discussions and hinder your decision-making. Let our skilled facilitators deal with rivalries within the group, so you can make the most out of your planning session and have difficult, open conversations without the fear of retribution.

Break down complex issues and test out your assumptions.

You want to make sure that the mistakes that stopped you from achieving your objectives in the past do not hurt your success in the future.

But for that, you need objective third-party leadership. You need to solve problems without biases. You need to analyze issues from different angles and debate the right solution.

That's exactly what our facilitators provide: we help you overcome the obstacles of planning and direct you to the right conversations.

Keep the discussion focused on key topics and use the time to its full potential.

Every minute of unnecessary tangents and off-topic discussions is costing you hundreds of dollars that your team could be making on the job.

Eliminate the chit-chat and get to the root of things with a Rhythm facilitator guiding you.

Rank your top ideas so you only focus on the ones that impact your business most.

Not every idea is worth investing your time and resources in. You need to find ideas that create high impact with the least amount of effort—and we will help you do exactly that.

We have facilitated hundreds quarterly planning sessions, and helped businesses zero in on the best ideas with no losers in the discussions.

Build actionable plans that are in sync with your organizational goals.

You have a vision for your business—and you need strategies that get you closer to it. But doing it alone is impossible. You need your team rallying behind you. You need help putting it into action.

Here's where our facilitators come in. We'll help you create execution-ready plans that drive towards your BHAG and ensure your teams know what their day jobs are contributing towards.

Get your entire team aligned and committed to the plan.

Getting everyone rowing in the same direction is hard.

But it's easier with a facilitator who creates a clear process for making decisions, addresses resistance and brings together different opinions to create a best-of-the-best plan that everyone is onboard with.

Our job is to ensure every idea is heard, all concerns are shared unreservedly and in the end, everyone is excited to do their bit for the plan!

Make sure everyone in the company understands the plan and their part in getting it done.

No plan is ready until every single contributor knows exactly what they need to do to make it a success.

By assigning responsibilities to every team and employee with clear success and failure criteria, our facilitators help you getting the plan from paper to reality.

Break your strategies down to bite-sized, executable pieces with the right KPIs and priorities.

Running the day-to-day business can get in the way of making progress on your annual and quarterly goals.

That's why Rhythm facilitators will help you break down your plans down to weeks and convert your goals to weekly KPIs that you can measure easily.

Keep your strategies front and center and review your progress every week, in a single glance.

Test out your plans so that you're never short on resources for execution.

Don't risk investing in a plan that's destined to fail.

We'll test your plans to make sure you have the resources needed to execute it effectively, fits your budget, drives revenue, has a clear success criteria and is linked to individual priorities across the organization.

We'll help you chip off all unrealistic parts of the plan, so it is truly achievable.

Choose the right planning session for your needs.
