This course is designed for senior leadership, managers and emerging leaders who are developing and executing strategic plans within their organizations.  According to Harvard Business Review 70% of companies have a strategic plan, yet only 10% implement that plan.  People and companies are “plugged” – stuck in old ways of doing things and by daily distractions.

Getting the right things done. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? All too often, people find themselves busy doing activities that aren’t tied to the most important things they want or need to accomplish.  In today’s topsy-turvy economic climate, companies find themselves in tough situations. When it happens to you—and it will—the question is will you be able to pull your team together, overcome the challenges and implement plans that drive the company’s future?

Fast paced and chock full of meaningful examples, this program applies 3 critical tools for digging out and getting the right things done.  You’ll work through…

  • An assessment of where you and your company needs to improve to get amazing results.
  • Actual situations that you’ll bring to the program and leave with definitive action plans.
  • A strategic planning and implementation scorecard that can be applied in your workplace.

I'm not a golfer and thought the presentation might be boring. I was surprised and learned a great deal how "PAR" could help me in business.
