Our long range plan planning reached its most interesting phase today, developing our activities for the next five years. It’s fascinating seeing how everyone approaches this, pretty much we all brainstormed ideas on our own, then pooled them together for discussion and further brainstorming.
On our own, pretty much everyone thought big, and then many things got whittled back when opened to the group. For example, one of my big plans was to launch a series of staff training workshops, which then became train staff on core competencies, and finally wound up with figure out what our core competencies should be in the first place. Hopefully you get the idea.
The discussion was great, this was actually our first meeting to run late as no one wanted to leave mid-debate. And we’re nowhere near done.
