Our Mission

We help our clients focus, make better decisions and grow by instilling the ability to think and act strategically.

Who We Are

LBL Strategies (LBL) is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. Since 1985 we have provided a full range of strategic planning and management consulting services to public, private and nonprofit organizations. Our customer value proposition grows out of more than 35 years of experience in helping organizations focus, make better decisions and grow by instilling the ability to think and act strategically. The LBL team is made up of respected practitioners for strategic planning and leadership development. LBL is actively involved in industry developments working with the Association for Strategic Planning at both local and national levels.

How We Help

The field of strategy management continues to gain wider acceptance within organizations in public, private and non-profit settings. As pioneering leaders in strategic management, we stay on top of practical developments in the field, adding new principles to our training and consulting services. A strategic planning process and the resulting plan are of little value unless the plan is fully executed. This can only be realized by maintaining clear alignment between the priorities set forth in the plan and day-to-day activities. To that end, we will strive to help your team build strategic management competencies to successfully execute your plan.

Regardless of your circumstances, we offer a program delivery method that works for you. In the current environment, we believe that offering a variety of training methods to fit your needs is key. For that reason, we offer both synchronous and asynchronous online learning opportunities in addition to our in-person programs.

What We Value

  • HONESTY AND RESPECT for each other, our partners, and our customers.

  • INTEGRITY in all situations, no exceptions.

  • We LISTEN to each other, our partners, and our customers.

  • OPEN MINDEDNESS as we recognize good ideas can and will come from all.

  • COLLABORATION ALWAYS as life is VERY short and resources are limited… we value 1+1 = 3, 4 or 5 (but never 2).

  • DIVERSITY IN OUR TEAM as our collective experience is fundamental to understanding the global market.

  • RISK TAKING & RISK MITIGATION as they are two sides of the same coin.

  • SUSTAINABILITY – In the end we make a lasting difference.
