Skilled Leaders Shift Gears By Training People & Developing Strategic Plans

Aarti Iyer's brilliant summary of strategic planning reveals an essential truth of skillful leadership practice - your strategic plan "should be the basis for introducing controlled change into an organization so it can adapt to changing times."

Aarti expands this idea with this forward-looking thought:
    "By anticipating shifting demands, the plan serves the purpose of allowing the organization to control its own direction, rather than waiting until [environmental - such as political, economic, cultural, legal, social or other] forces demand change (and demand change NOW)."[for more information, see the Human Resources Circle discussion group in Yahoo - HRCircle at Yahoogroups.com - Digest-142]
Very few of us enjoy disruptions to our normal, everyday routines and thought-patterns. Effective leaders insist on using annual strategic planning and update sessions to:

    => Sensitize their people to face the realities and process of change;

    => Prepare their people to look-for, welcome and embrace the forces of change;

    => Empower their people to smoothly deal with and manage year-to-year changes;

    => Train their people to become skilled agents and competent masters of change.

Are you using the planning process to encourage and engage your people to face and embrace the challenges of change?

How often do you use your strategic plan, its objectives, its perspectives or its vision to empower, nurture and train your group?

Do you look for better ways to develop and strengthen the leadership skills of your people?
