I will be talking to Glen Hiemstra later this week and doing a podcast that I will share with you in a week or two, but I wanted to let you know about his book now.
It’s called: Turning the Future into Revenue: What Businesses and Individuals Need to Know to Shape Their Futures. I read it over the last week and used some of the information to enhance a strategy meeting I facilitated this weekend. I love the book and think all leaders ought to get one. I found Part II, How to Predict the Future of Your Business or Career – And Plan for it Now, to be particularly helpful.
I highlighted the heck out of it. I like Glen’s distinction of a vision versus mission versus plan and I like the examples and structure he offers to help us create and move toward our preferred future.
