Colin Dunn: Leadership, Planning and Communications Consultant

Sponsored by Black Hills Energy

In Carpe Diem Strategic Execution Colin will share how to avoid the three “killer B’s” of strategic planning: burden, boredom, and BS and instead, create a compelling vision and make forward progress in the face of the “day job.” How do you do that? By capitalizing on principles of human nature—the principles that make carpe diem strategic execution possible! It starts with a word-picture of where you need to go—your compelling vision of the future. And the more “visual” the better! I’ll share with you the three “B’s’ of visioning, the keys of making our vision a reality. Then we’ll discuss how to “supercharge” execution by creating goals that meet five basic requirements. Finally, we’ll outline techniques to achieve your goals even as you face the “headwind” of the day job.

Carpe Diem execution means what it says: seize the day—each day—as an opportunity to move closer to your vision. It can be done!
