Making Strategy Sexy Again

Most leaders have a clear vision of where they want their organizations to go.  But getting there is often tedious and dispiriting, leading to unmotivated employees and underwhelming results.  But it doesn’t have to be this way.  Strategy can have more life than a binder or a Gantt chart.  Brandon will explore how strategy can be profoundly invigorating, calling out the best in people, and producing sustained hope, purpose, and growth.
