Take a step closer to your goals every day with this essential executive planner There never seem to be enough hours in the day to take care of daily business and work towards your goals, it′s an issue of prioritization and time management. The Strategic Planning Handbook offers readers the solution, in the form of a daily and weekly system that shuffles your schedule until everything fits. You′ll first define your goals in concrete terms, translating your vision into workable strategy, and then you′ll put pen to paper and map out a plan for making it reality. Day–by–day and week–by–week, you′ll watch the results roll in as you fine–tune your plans and exercise an unprecedented level of control over your life and your business.
Breaking long–term and large–scale strategy into smaller chunks allows you to celebrate the small victories. As the "wins" pile up, they fuel the momentum that keeps you moving toward the ultimate vision. This book provides a clear blueprint for setting it into motion.
  • Adopt daily and weekly habits in pursuit of your business goals
  • Define your plan with accountability and small wins
  • Manage your time more efficiently by prioritising goals
  • Gain control of your day, your life and your business
The busier you are, the more you need a compass to keep you on track. You lead and manage others, but now it′s time to lead yourself. Define your vision, your way, then plan your work and work your plan. The Strategic Planning Handbook keeps you on–task and accountable, with realistic advice and practical guidance on taking back control.

"If you truly want to make a significant change in your business and personal life, then you need this book."
SIMON HAZELDINE, bestselling author of Neuro–Sell: How Neuroscience Can Power Your Sales Success
The Check–in Strategy Journal will help you take control and ownership of your business and personal life performance. It is your guide, a compass to manage your time and activities. The busier you are, the more you need a tool to keep you in–check and on–track.
Unlike other journals, all the tools, techniques and exercises have been proven to help grow business significantly. The authors introduce tools they use in their own businesses and with clients from Fortune 500 blue chips (Barclays, Virgin, Google Partners, Vistage, Academy of Chief Executives, Warwick and Cranfield Business Schools) to high–growth, independently–owned organisations to not–for–profit organisations.
In Part One you will be guided though a series of strategic exercises to create goals and targets for the coming year. Part Two helps you to achieve these through daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly monitoring and accountability.
Define your vision, your way. Plan your business and personal goals. Now work through the plan. The Check–in Strategy Journal will help you create clarity and focus for all aspects of your business and personal life.
