Strategic Planning Success: A Story of Impact


1. Learn the steps most nonprofits miss in the strategic planning process. Hint: Strategic planning requires more than a single meeting of the board

2. Learn how alignment of the pieces includes the overall brand identity of your organization

3. Learn how the strategic plan can and should be used as a tool to foster greater board engagement

Strategy is not an event. It is a constant, evolving process. Learn how one organization applied the principles of the Strategic Coaching Continuum™ to achieve rapid, meaningful forward movement in their mission and vision. Certified Leadership and Strategy Coach Patrick Jinks will share the tenets of the continuum, and Homeless No More CEO Lila Anna Sauls will reveal the astounding results her organization has achieved by shifting its thinking on strategic planning and leadership. The Strategic Coaching Continuum™ takes organizations beyond a single-day strategic planning retreat, where many nonprofit strategic plans go to die. Slowing down to get the right planning steps in the right order leads to greater speed and success in the implementation phase. Patrick and Lila Anna will reveal the simple power of having true clarity and bold vision. In only two years’ time, Homeless No More rebranded themselves, created a full continuum of care from emergency shelter to permanent affordable housing, launched a $5 million capital campaign, convened community roundtables, established a new corporate office, achieved affordable housing development certification, and more. This workshop is not about homelessness. It is about effective strategic planning and thinking, as modeled by a single organization.
