* First Virtual *
national women's

leadership conference

The mission of the American
Business Women's Association is
to bring together businesswomen
of diverse occupations and to
provide opportunities for them
to help themselves and
others grow personally and
professionally through leadership,
education, networking support,
and national recognition.

Today's business climate continues to be exceptionally complex and
volatile. Even as we move into this " new normal " environment, we no
longer have the luxury of being able to take for granted that shifting
trends will be visible or that customer needs will be stable. Now is the
time to clarify what is required to ensure your future success.
Take advantage of any emerging opportunities and insights you
have gained from your strategic triage efforts. Reassess your strategic
investments in all of the assets of your enterprise. Most importantly,
shift your focus from a reactive planning mode to one that takes a more
proactive planning approach that pivots around your customers and
those you want to bring into your sales cycle.
Your Shifting Planning Focus

Many leaders are currently experiencing Planning Fatigue. The intensity
of operating in a continual planning mode has been stressful and has
taken its toll on many leaders. Some are saying it is impossible to keep
engaging in strategic planning every three months. They are exhausted.
