A strategic planning session is a two-hour intensive workshop focused on identifying and addressing the issues that are preventing you from achieving your strategic goals. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to identify, define, and prioritize your strategic goals and then develop a plan to get there. You’ll also learn how to set goals and achieve them, not only in time for the next meeting but also in order to prevent distractions that can derail your progress.
To be fair, the workshop is not a training session per se. It is a tool to help you focus on and organize your goals. It’s just as important as any training you will receive in the course. However, this is a workshop and not a training session.
Strategic planning and strategic thinking is not a thing you can just go do in the middle of a meeting for fun. You can do this in the course but only if you focus on strategy. In the workshop, we will build a plan to achieve a goal and then develop a plan to ensure you achieve that goal. The goal is to make sure we don’t get distracted while we are working on the plan. It is a plan that can’t be accomplished without strategic planning.
You can do this with any type of strategy. If you start with a strategy that you think is going to work, you will never work on the plan. You will never work on the plan unless you get distracted and/or have a lot of time in your life to work on it.
Strategic planning may lead to the next chapter. We’ll probably need strategy to build our plan, but we are more of a planner than a planner. The more we know, the better we will work on a plan.
You have to think about what you want to accomplish. You have to know what you want to accomplish. Then you have to create a plan to get there. You have to know where you need to go. And you have to do that without being interrupted. The more you think about what you want to accomplish, the more you will be able to get there.
This is the sort of thinking that’s often referred to as strategic planning. Strategic thinking is a much more holistic approach to planning and problem-solving, and is applied to every area of your life. It’s an active process that’s developed over a lifetime of experience. The more you think about how to accomplish what you want, the better you will be able to accomplish it. You’ll be able to figure out which way to go. And it won’t be interrupted.
The fact that the more you think strategically, the better you’ll be able to approach a problem, problem-solve it, and get the results you want, is called strategic planning. We use it all the time. And it is an active process. It keeps your head cool and your mind active. It keeps you thinking about how you can solve a problem.
It isn’t actually all that different. However, strategic planning is a process that helps us to set goals for ourselves. It’s a way to help us to achieve more of our goals, which makes us more productive and efficient. For instance, we often use the term “strategic thinking” to describe how we decide what we want to do, where we want to go, and how we will accomplish our goals.
