Our Strategic Planning Process for Leaders

Effective strategic planning is planning with purpose. We treat strategic planning as an intentional process rather than a one-time event. Our program lets you create a dynamic blueprint for continuous evolution and success in competitive business environments. Dame Leadership will transform your vision into results in four steps.

1. Define a Purpose

Your organization’s goals form the basis for your strategic plan. Our planning process allows you to explore your goals, identify a starting point and ensure everyone is on the same page. The first step involves:

  • Meeting with the CEO.
  • Interviewing stakeholders.
  • Evaluating organizational health.
  • Clarifying your vision, mission and purpose.

2. Build an Intentional Culture

Office culture can directly impact productivity and wellbeing, especially if you have a hybrid workforce. Developing an intentional culture improves communication, ensures a proper work-life balance and unifies your team. We’ll help you experience these benefits by:

  • Aligning your organization with your values, vision and mission.
  • Analyzing your competitive strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT).
  • Identifying strategic anchors — core values that bring your team together.
  • Developing a diagram of your organization’s connections through roles, relationships and responsibilities.
  • Stating your driving force — the source of your competitive advantage.
  • Creating a strategic dashboard using your long-term goals, financial calculations and action plans and programs.

3. Execute Your Plan

Consolidate the results of the previous steps into a one-page, actionable plan. You’ll also identify the target audience you want your strategy to reach. Doing so:

  • Creates accountability.
  • Sets a clear timeline.
  • Allows you to receive valuable feedback and insight.
  • Makes implementing your strategy easier.
  • Sets the stage for an effective evaluation.

4. Measure Your Results

Strategic planning is an investment. Once you’ve implemented your strategy, commit to quarterly reviews and updates. You’ll be able to analyze your plan’s efficacy and refine it based on your conclusions. Combine your metrics with regular leadership assessments to define your next steps. These evaluations give you personalized feedback on your leading style, strengths and growth potential.

Dame Leadership offers four assessment options to help you overcome blind spots, move forward and achieve long-term success:

  • DiSC Assessment: Measures four essential leadership traits and increases self awareness, collaboration and accountability.
  • Strength Finder: Identifies your strengths in strategic thinking, execution, influence and relationship building.
  • Asher APQ/CPQ: Provides sales executives with feedback on goal orientation, social drive, optimism and other key personality traits.
  • Hiring Assessment: Ensures you choose team members who embody your organization’s culture and goals during the hiring process.

Developing a strategic plan empowers you to bring your team together to accomplish shared goals. The journey will be unique for each business, but you can expect to navigate some key steps along the way.

1. Determine Your Current Position

Understanding where you are now is fundamental to your future progress. Evaluate your organization’s current status, strengths and weaknesses as well as its progress toward objectives.

2. Develop a Strategy

Once you understand your current position as a company, it’s time to create your strategy for moving forward. Identify how to grow your organization, address weaknesses and obstacles, and build strength across the business. Determine the scope of your goals and the timeline of when you want to complete critical metrics.

3. Implement Your Plan

Your strategy is the roadmap for implementation. Ensure you have the resources and people in place to manage execution. Be sure to periodically review your progress.

4. Manage Your Performance

As you move forward, assess your current performance and compare it to your goals. You’ll be able to more clearly identify the next steps as you evaluate how your business performance measures your strategy.
