Strategic Planning Mini-Series: Creating Goals That Translate Vision Into Reality Nonprofit Mastermind Podcast

    • Non-Profit

In this week’s episode, I’m wrapping up my short series on the architecture of a powerful annual strategic plan. I’m focusing on goal setting - a simple framework for setting goals that will serve as the powerful link between your vision for impact and what you actually do every month and week and day. 

When you’re bogged down by the messiness of running your organization, managing your team, working with your board, and all of the other things that you need to get done as a nonprofit leader, you want to really know that the activities you’re spending money and time on - the tasks you’re doing, etc. - are directly linked to - and will lead to - the impact you care most about. 

The way to do that is to make sure that your goals are grounded in your priorities. And we talked last time about making sure that the priorities are grounded in your vision. That’s the throughline. 
In this episode, you will learn: 
The key elements of a well architected annual strategic plan The importance of setting meaningful goals How to define a really effective goal Questions to ask to identify 3 year and 1 year goals for your organization
