Do you want to make
For too many organizations, strategy has become a pathetic exercise to create a document,
a document that is out of date as soon as it is printed.
Stop the madness!
Move from strategic planning to acting strategically in all you do
You are in the right place if...
You want a better strategy-making experience that drives meaningful work.
You have a strategy created pre-COVID19 pandemic (or any disaster) and want to make it more relevant to the new context and into the future.
You have a strategy but not sure how to implement it.
You have data or assessments but do not know what action to take with this information.
You are overwhelmed with even the thought of strategic planning.
You don’t know where to start.
You are unclear how to navigate uncertainty.
You or your team are facing burnout – doing too much instead of the most impactful work.
You may not want to read further if….
You want to keep missing the mark because you are out of sync with rapidly changing conditions.
You farm out your strategy to a consultant and don’t want to be involved.
You believe strategy development is only for those in charge.
You want to be “one-and-done” with strategy.
You believe strategy development is an every 5 or 10-year exercise.
You don’t care what your stakeholders say or need.
You are invited to
TadZo’s Strategy Master Class
How to move from strategic planning to acting strategically in all you do
In this Master Class, I share my secrets of how I have empowered communities and non-profits across the United States and Canada for meaningful action. This unconventional approach to strategy has been utilized across the globe with a wide range of industries and organizations, especially those who are tired of strategic planning and simply want to make a positive impact.
The Strategy Master Class is truly an immersive learning experience where you learn by doing. By participating fully in the Master Class, you will be able to create and implement your strategy.
How so? This Master Class is a combination of live classes with hands-on exercises you can replicate for your strategy, online course training and materials, with private coaching sessions, plus ongoing support via a private LinkedIn group for Strategy Master Class students only… AND you can come back, free of charge, to all future Strategy Master Class cohorts.

Groups with many stakeholders.
Organizations that operate in an environment where many factors are outside the control of your organization, yet these factors influence success.
You, if your success is heavily dependent on partnerships.

Dates don't work for you?
Then sign up for future announcements of course...
and other pop-up events
However, due to the extensiveness of this Master Class it will only be offered a couple times a year.
What if I can’t make all the live classes?
What if we have a very small budget?
What if we just finished our strategic plan?
Will an inclusive process slow down our planning?
We have the same tired 10 volunteers.
We don’t know enough so we need to hire an expert to tell us what to do.
What if we just hired a consultant to do our strategy?
What if we want to hire TadZo for our strategy?
