Is It Time to Shift Our Beliefs About Strategic Planning?

Most strategic planning sessions begin with an assessment or may jump right away into creating the vision statement. In some cases there may be a discussion about the business model.Yet if we believe to begin with the end in mind and for enterprises that end is to make a profit, then maybe it may make sense to start building our profit model first?What are your thoughts?I shared mine on this blog…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I consider myself a guide or a Heurist for those forward thinking leaders who want to stop coasting their businesses or even themselves. By breaking down the silos that separate people (talents and thoughts) and operations (management and actions) begins with these 3 verbs - Assess; Clarify; and Execute and works with these 3 key values - Strategic Thinking; Proven Processes & Tools; and Connectivity.

Also I believe we set young people up for failure as exemplified by the majority of college bound full time students take 6 years to earn a 4 year degree ($100,000 negative impact), I also work with parents to develop the skills their children will need for college and career success in today's 21st century global economy.

Since being a young child (more years ago than I care to admit)I am an avid reader in various genres. This love for reading continues today as my reading pile never seems to grow smaller only bigger.

As my first double major was journalism and philosophy, that excitement has translated into writing over 3,000 articles, an online business column, a book Be the Red Jacket along with establishing incredible relationships through respectful dialogue.

My personal motto, Change Your Words; Improve Your Results, is based upon these words of Dr. Norman Vincent Peale - "Change Your Thoughts; Change Your World!"

Hello Leanne.

Yes, that is a good idea, let's get together next week, if you have time.

Sorry for the slow response, I have several busy projects going on.

Congratulations on being the 2,733 member to My Linking Power Forum. Just so you know, I am member 300. It is amazing to see how quickly Vincent has assembled this network.

I noticed that you are new to the network and fairly close to me in proximity. I would love the opportunity to learn more about you and your involvement in the community. Let me know when we could connect.

If you have time, make sure to join NW Indiana reCONNECT (http://nwireconnect.ning.com).
