Being Strategic

The last couple of weeks I’ve walked through a blog series called “A Guest Experience.” If you followed along at all you discovered that I was using a unique strategic process to solve a problem in the context of the church environment. I’ve said many times to my colleagues and friends that I wish I had this book available to me many years ago.

That said, I’d like to give credit where it is rightfully due.

Erika Andersen is a business thinker and the author of the book “Being Strategic“. Nearly all of the ideas and methods I have introduced in my most recent blog series are directly from that book. There is a lot more in the book I haven’t talked about. Being strategic with groups, building a culture of strategic thinking and the art of facilitating meetings are a few.

I highly recommend this book to you. You can pick up a copy right here at
