How to engage staff and execute on your strategic priorities

It’s a common experience that the Achilles heel of any plan is the accumulation and follow through of the actions, milestones, and measures that allow for progress to be tracked and communicated. Join this webinar to learn how to keep plans and performance efforts off the shelf and in the heads, hearts, and hands of the people who will make a difference.  

In this webinar on June 20, Envisio & Clients will discuss:

  1. The journey from goal setting, to action planning, to communicating progress.
  2. Creating the right conditions to achieve staff engagement and buy-in - so implementation succeeds! 
  3. Effective reporting strategies and dashboards.
  4. Community Dashboards that promote progress and accomplishments for Elected Officials and Residents
