Stategic Planning

28 Oct

It has been a busy week looking at end year events and planning for next year. Strategic planning of this kind can be emotional because people are involved. I include in my reading this week is a recent sabbatical report that outline culture in school. I highly recommend you take time to read it.

I have learned this week the following about planning and leadership.

Trust People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.

Passion Team members will not be excited about a vision that the leader doesn’t care about. They need to see and feel your passion before they embrace it. Still there must be detail or something behind it.

Relationship Connectivity is important. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Timing Is there ever a good time? For a vision to connect, its timing needs to be right. The right decision at the wrong time is still the wrong decision. Sometimes staff need time to think. This can be difficult and frustrating as a leader.

    Strange question, on your 28 October post you have an image of a planning meeting: Planning 000019099036 HiRes.jpg (4 pleistocene type people around a table with one showing a pie chart) I would like to use it in a piece I am working on, but can’t figure out who owns it or licenses it. Did you license it from someone? Would you let me know how to contact them?

    I like the idea of Mountain 2 Surf, I used to live in LA in Santa Monica.

    Thank you for your help with this.

    Best
