Why do you need it?

The level of performance and improvement needed today is unprecedented. To outthink and outperform the competition, leaders and their teams must address business challenges by establishing a clear picture of the destination, the current reality, and the gap between the two in a systematic and structured way. They must then generate innovative strategies, known as 4th Options, that enable the organization to close the gap in ways that the competition does
not anticipate.

Through Imagine, participants consider their desired Destination. Through Dissect, they examine their Current Reality. Through Expand, they build innovative 4th Option® strategies to close the gap between the two. Through Analyze, they select and prioritize their best strategies. Through Sell, they enroll people in their plans.

When leaders and their teams, individually and collectively, improve their ability to think innovatively and strategically, they also increase their capacity to produce results they really care about. This leads to the possibility of achieving extraordinary performance together with satisfaction and fulfillment for the individuals involved.
