Success in today's complex global arena is challenging and the rules are changing. For an organization to compete globally, executive leaders will have to create an organizational culture in which everyone is challenged to seek innovative and improved methods of doing business. Leading today's organization into tomorrow's competitive arena will require teamwork, collaboration, and speed. To create and lead an organization that will maintain a competitive advantage during such turbulent times, many executives will have to transform an organizational culture that was founded on yesterday's paradigms. Priorities will have to shift and thinking will have to change.
The best way to predict the future is to create it! Strategic Planning is a process that determines the future of the organization and what organizational resources will be needed to ensure success. The process involves determining what business opportunities exist, and what resources are available to capitalize on those opportunities.
Business leaders today have found that developing a strategy and a plan is far more effective than leaving the future to chance. Furthermore, the key factors that create higher levels of motivation and commitment continuously fuel higher levels of achievement. Finally, the effective implementation of the plan is as important as planning. This is the true determining factor as to whether or not a company is successful.
The Strategic Planning Processes provide a format for developing a Strategic Plan, taking that strategy through the business planning process and establishing measurable goals. It is a process that involves not only determining where a company is going, but also how it is going to get there.
Personal Leadership Development
A leader combines the vision and curiosity of a dreamer with the practical engineering of a builder. A leader is goal-directed, looking forward with anticipation toward the attainment of goals. Goals give meaning and purpose to life and serve as a continuous source of motivation in the pursuit of all activities. The capacity for leadership exists in everyone, but most people never take the time to develop it. Leadership is courage, determination, confidence, and the ability to view a situation and respond to it.
Positive Leadership assumes that goals can be accomplished, the job can be done, the problem can be solved, and obstacles can be overcome. Leaders create their own future because they have faith in themselves.
Management over the last quarter century has taken on many new and complex dimensions, and this trend is likely to continue. Advancing technology has created new and exciting possibilities in every organization. Progress creates challenge, and the challenge facing management today is: developing an organization that can meet tomorrow's goals while continuing to meet the daily challenges of today. To balance these organizational demands, managers need a systematic approach to their jobs. They need Management Development.
Management Development involves the “what and how” of training and understanding the “why” of a situation. The result is managers who are working because they want to and because they understand why and how they are essential to the organization's goals. These managers know that the goals can be achieved, obstacles can be overcome, and problems can be solved.
This program makes Management Development not only possible, but eminently profitable. Individually, each manager reflects the behavior and attitude of a goal-directed manager. Collectively they form a powerful force that literally assures the achievement of corporate goals.
In today's business, the supervisor is the "main link" between the company's goals and the people who must accomplish those goals. Because of the functions of supervisors and the major role they play, it is obvious that good supervisors are the key to the success of any organization. Many of the supervisor's daily decisions affect profits, attitudes, and morale. With a role and a function of this magnitude, it would seem logical that the process of becoming a supervisor would require years of training. However, most supervisors have had little or no training in supervisory skills. Almost universally, today's supervisory force is made up of men and women who have been promoted from being a super worker to being a supervisor.
The Supervision process is a structured, open-ended, pragmatic approach to developing supervisors. It is not a teaching program, but a developing program designed to engage supervisors in a process that results in personal and professional growth. The development of more effective supervisors has a direct correlation to an increase in the productivity and profits of a company.
