It’s easy for strategic planning to become a chore — something the leadership team has to do, but no one really sees the true value of or enjoys. There’s a better way. By integrating strategic planning into your activities, you establish the vision, engagement and accountability to propel your organization forward. Through this hands-on workshop you will learn how to adopt an actionable approach to strategic planning that results in:

– Organization-wide ownership and engagement (not just “buy-in”)

– Clear, achievable priorities

– Measurable, long-term impact



Road Maps is an ongoing workshop series aimed at strengthening and elevating northern Nevada’s arts and culture sector. Through topic-specific workshops, arts and culture leaders will gain a comprehensive set of tools, skills, and guidelines to help maximize their community impact. Series co-presented by Nevada Arts Council, Nevada Humanities, Washoe County, City of Reno, City of Sparks, Sierra Arts Foundation, and the Reno Arts Consortium.

This series is made possible through additional funding from the Generator, the Reno Arts & Culture Commission, and the Pioneer Center for Performing Arts.



Steven Weiss, President of The Weiss Group, is a business strategist with more than 25 years of experience at some of Northern California’s most prominent public, private and nonprofit

organizations. Prior to establishing his consulting practice, Weiss was vice president of Marketing & Public Affairs for The Sacramento Bee. He previously served as director of University Cultural Programs at UC Davis, chaired the building committee, and served on the leadership team that generated philanthropic support for the

$60 million Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. Weiss is a Capital Public Radio board member and serves on Sacramento’s Creative Edge Steering Committee to develop a regional arts,

culture, and creative economy plan.
