Developing and Executing Your Career Strategic Plan

Many people assume that the hardest thing about 'Strategy' is the planning; being creative or visionary enough to set goals or aspire to grow. The simple reality is that 'knowing what to do' is the easy bit. Execution is the heavy lifting. Action and accountability are what separate the doers from the dreamers.

In this candid and practical course, we’ll take a page from the playbook of high-performing organizations, reviewing the components of an effective strategic plan; mission, vision, values, goals, and behaviors. Along the way, we’ll consider research on the topics of purpose, well-being, and goal-setting. Participants will walk away with a road map to effectively execute on that plan, on their journey to personal and professional success.
