Abstract:
Successful leaders inspire actions through words that inform, inspire and persuade. A leader's language must make employees feel valued, encouraged and respected. This presentation will describe the implementation of a strategic thinking retreat using the SOAR model. An appreciative inquiry approach was used in the design and development of questions for working groups to explore future goals aligned with the five magnet domains. Using an appreciative inquiry approach supports "imagining" with a focus on the positives which already exist in your organization. Bringing diverse staff members and leadership roles together in a shared visioning process can link talented individuals from throughout your organization with an opportunity to focus on the greater good and build alliances across and throughout cross functional teams. These types of opportunities expose staff and leaders outside of their "normal view of their working groups" providing opportunities to consider the possibilities. These possibilities help create a new shared vision for the future and evoke a sense of partnership that encourages inclusion. Transformational leadership requires a shared vision where the "home team" understands and supports a professional practice model culture through teamwork and perseverance. The design and implementation of a strategic thinking retreat is a model which can assist organizations in controlling their destiny by creating a better future through shared efforts today. To succeed in the future we must live to learn, find passion in our lives and surround ourselves with positive people. Appreciative inquiry, with a focus on strategic thinking, provides just this type of opportunity.
