** Leadership Weekly
We talk about strategy using terms of relative mutability. Strategies are “predictive,” “adaptive,” or, in adrienne marie brown’s language, “emergent.” A corollary of this is the degree to which strategies guide us to do a set of things or to be a set of ways, or perhaps both. These conceptual tensions certainly pre-date 2020, but after a year of dramatic, multifarious change across civil society, it feels appropriate to ask, “Strategic Planning: What Now?” Explore the question with us.
