Blake was excited about the senior team’s first planning meeting. From his perspective, the timing was perfect.

“Good morning! Thanks for carving out a day to begin creating the future!” Blake’s energy reflected the importance he placed on this meeting and the process he and the team were beginning today. “I have always believed planning is one of a leader’s most important responsibilities.”

“Are you serious? We’ve never given much attention to it before. In the years we’ve done a plan, we just created something that went in a file. We never looked at it again,” Charles said in a moment of transparency.

Elizabeth added in a joking tone, “How’s that working out for us?”

Several members of the team chuckled.

“I am serious about the importance of planning, Charles. Thanks for asking the question.

“Do you know what leaders do?” Blake said, turning his eyes from Charles to the team.

“Lead?” Elizabeth said.

“Yes. To what end?”

“To accomplish goals,” Brad said.

“You’re getting closer,” Blake said. “Leaders are the architects of the future.” He paused to let that idea sink in. Then he continued. “Our plan is the blueprint for the future we’re going to create. And, the plan helps us get everyone in the organization aligned.”

“Exactly what do you mean by ‘aligned’?” Charles asked.
