About the Program
Have you ever wondered at the end of the year why you didn't hit your organizational goals? Do you ever look around and see others excelling while your team is executing the status quo? Do you ever feel disorganized, like you are running around putting out fires all day long? If so, you are not alone.
Strategic planning is one of the most misunderstood and misused tools that leaders have in their arsenal. Too often leaders take either a "ready - shoot - aim" approach or approach it from a mindful planning process with little to no focus on actual execution. Too often these individuals create a beautiful plan that sits on the shelf collecting dust until the next fiscal year when everyone wonders "Why didn't we hit our goals this year?"
