"…keeping you great"
|Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.|

Holiday Present — a bonus chapter titled "Strategic Planning: Preparing and Leading the Planning Process" is now available to download for free at www.scalingup.com. Hope it helps you prepare for a successful 2015 and beyond. Notes the Executive Summary for the chapter:
Powerful Question (Parent or Leader) — the bonus chapter includes one of the most powerful questions a parent can ask their child or a leader can their team. Let's say your son or daughter brings home a great set of grades or wins the science fair. Right after you exclaim "congratulations" the most powerful question you can ask is "how did you do it?" Let them relive and share how they were able to accomplish their feat. The same with your team. We explain how to do this as part of a quarterly all-employee meeting in the bonus chapter.
Sample One-Page Strategic Plan (OPSP) — we're often asked to show a completed OPSP. The bonus chapter includes an example on the last two pages. We'll be creating completed samples for all the tools, and for various business types, in 2015.
Happy Holidays! I'm taking next week off; but back with a weekly insight Dec 30 to help prepare you for 2015, including five key (but tough) questions to ask.
