A strategic plan is both the roadmap and the compass for your organization. When your plan is done well, it enables you to get clear, get organized, get going, and get results as quickly as possible—so you can get on with operating your day-to-day business.

There are four phases of the process to create your strategic plan:

  • In the 1st Phase, you and your team get clear about the direction to take the organization and why to do it;
  • In the 2nd Phase, you will learn what will motivate your team to get organized and be on the same page, moving in the same direction, and why to do it;

  • In the 3rd Phase, you will learn what will cause your team to get going efficiently and effectively with implementing your action plans and why it’s important to keep the plan alive;
  • In the 4th Phase, you will learn how to ensure that your teams get results that exceed your desires and expectations.

My hope is that you will see strategic planning as one of the best ways to truly engage your employees in the success of your organization and just how easy, fun and inspiring the process can be for everyone involved.

Much success and fulfillment for the New Year,
