We are picking back up on our strategic leadership plan again today. A couple of things before we dive in:
On page two of the worksheet (get one here), there is a modified SWOT table. SWOT stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.
Add your three goals to the table (1st column). For each goal, think about the strengths (facilitators) and weaknesses (barriers) you have that will influence your ability to achieve your goals. These include a wide variety of things such as your own leadership traits and knowledge, workload, others in your workplace, and even the structures in your organization.
Notice that my strengths and weaknesses include skills (good writer), traits (not afraid), structures (schedule and deadlines – the lack of them!) and some technical knowledge (technology stuff).
Your list doesn’t have to be exhaustive, just capture the thigs that jump out.
