Effective Planning Needs Leadership Skills, a Process of Development & Training To Energize Breakthrough Ideas!

To ensure successful buy-in for plans, and maximize the involvement of all associates, leaders need a process for developing plans which generates as many breakthrough ideas as possible.

In a recent post, in the Human Resources Circle discussion group [see HR Circle at yahoogroups.com - Digest-142], member Aarti suggests two things leaders are responsible for in the planning process:
  1. "ensure that as many members of the organization as possible buy into the values, mission, and broad organizational goals" being proposed by the plan.

  2. managing "the planning process so that staff feel that they have adequate input into the process, that they are heard, and their values and visions are incorporated into the final plan and its implementation"

Effective leaders like Jack Welch of GE, Bill Gates of Microsoft and Tom Peters all agree that leading means developing, guiding, training, coaching and educating people physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.

Do you have a planning process that enables you to encourage and engage your people in all those ways?

How do you solicit, channel, align and incorporate the personal values and visions of your group so that organizational goals and priorities are enhanced and extended?

Once the plan is created, how can it be your roadmap that you use to lead, supervise, steer and control its implementation to successful conclusions?
