The First Step To Strategic Planning Success: Prepare

I am so excited to announce my new free series, 5 Simple Steps to Strategic Planning Success. 

In this 5-part training series, you’ll get short, easy-to-follow videos and actionable worksheets that will demystify the strategic planning process and help you develop a strategic plan for your nonprofit … one step at a time.

I’ve gotta admit, this is the first time I’ve done anything like this (video recording, editing, and what I’ve now learned is called videoscribing).  So over the past week I’ve been scouring the internet, and praising Google, You Tube, and endless bloggers for all of the free and simple resources they have to offer.

Which reminds me why I decided to create this series in the first place.  For you.  And the non-profit organization you lead, support, advise, or dream of one day creating.  To make it easier for you to reach your goals, mobilize support, and create some real change in the world.

In this first video I’ll help you tackle the first step of strategic planning – preparing.  You’ll learn what the strategic planning process looks like, how long it will take, and who you need to involve.

Get ready to dream big, because in the next video in the series, we work to create your nonprofit’s desired state.
