Your ability to succinctly summarize our goals and objectives was a catalyst for discussion and consensus. Your ability to work with a very strong group of personalities, allowing everyone to feel heard and have input was what led to this being a positive and successful process.”—Emily Blanck, Executive Director, Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa.

I believe the essentials of successful planning in any organization involve good team work, excellent leadership, and a focus on core questions: What are we deciding? What do we want? Why? What resources are needed (including human assets)? How can we get the resources we need and use them productively? How will we measure success? What actions to take and when? How can we learn as we take action?
