Are You Really Mission Driven?

Chip's specialty is to help the leadership teams of schools and other organizations to do the preparatory work which makes a good strategic plan possible. The best strategic planning cannot be done until the organization's leadership is utterly dedicated to the mission. Using various instruments he's developed over the years, including insights and criteria derived from Jim Collin's Good to Great (2000), Chip can help your leadership group do the difficult work of "digging up the fallow ground" in order to gain a true and clear picture of the first purpose—or mission—of the organization.
