A repeated refrain from many leaders is that their work days are focused on “putting out fires.” By participating in Strategic Planning with an experienced trainer from Bell Leadership Institute, you will learn how to adopt a proactive stance, enabling your organization to focus on the work that leads to future success. We will lead you through a detailed analysis of the changes, problems, opportunities and needs of the external environment to which your company must adapt to maximize its effectiveness over the next five years. This analysis is based on all relevant factors, including the company’s mission, vision, core values, internal strengths and weaknesses, the competitive marketplace and economic conditions and goals. We will then focus on the actual work to be done, including the organization structure and human systems required to achieve the desired goals. Finally, you will leave with an implementation plan that you and your team are ready to execute with confidence, having established clarity, consensus and commitment.
