STRATEGIC THINKING DRIVES STRATEGIC PLANNING
The best strategic leaders anticipate where their business is headed and see changes before others do.  Far from being magicians, instead they shine at outside-in thinking that sharpens their ability to anticipate well.  They know their customers extremely well, foresee emerging trends, and understand changing dynamics.  The headwinds public sector agencies are daunting indeed, yet increasingly leaders are participating in strategic thinking processes that lead to strategic planning. More than a project, strategic planning serves as a catalyst to marshal precious resources towards desired goals.

FORWARD SOLUTIONS -
IMPLEMENTING A SUCCESSION PLANNING PROGRAM
Here's a troubling statistic: According to  the latest Gallup report on state and local government workers' engagement, a median of only 29 percent of them are engaged at work. What's worse, 17 percent of public workers are "actively disengaged."  On Thursday, May 18th, join me as I present a webinar sponsored by Linked In on " Six Ways to Engineer Public-Sector Employee Engagement."  Engaged employees "go the extra mile," are more creative, better strategic thinkers and take ownership all of which influence organizational performance.
