When your team is aligned with your strategic plan, it increases their opportunity to amplify your success.

Strategic Planning is essential to an organization’s success. You already know this and you probably have some type of strategic planning process in place.

Take a moment and critically ask yourself; is it working? After the planning sessions are over and you’re back at the office, are the strategic objectives being implemented -- or is everyone racing back to their previous day-to-day tasks?

Are you tracking to meet your goals this quarter? How about your three-year goals? Are they still within reach as you predicted?

Leaders today struggle with a type of myopia

You need to make the quarter; it’s all about immediate results. But when you only focus on the immediate, three years down the road you might find yourself facing a mess of priorities because you continued to pile immediate objectives on top of each other.

The problem is, without strategic planning, nothing else really matters. The new employees you just hired may have all the right skills but without a strong strategy, they will simply be left running in circles.

Don’t fall into the trap of creating a plan that sits on the shelf or isn’t owned by the people who have to execute it. Instead, harness your teams’ passion, input, knowledge, and power by creating a Strategic Plan that aligns your organization’s Purpose with the individual’s Purpose.

Set Direction & Priorities

By defining a shared vision for success and prioritizing the activities that will get you there, your team members become accountable and gain clarity on which tasks they should be working on and when.

Align Your Teams

Developing a team-based strategic plan helps align departments, people and resources to ensure daily activities are contributing to the overall strategic priorities.

Simplify Decision-Making

A strategic plan prioritizes the activities necessary for success and makes it easier to say no to distractions. Clear action plans for each department gives every team criteria by which to make decisions.

Improve Communication

When everyone knows where they fit and how they contribute to success they are more engaged, open and honest. Communication becomes more focused on executing the shared vision.
