In preparation for the upcoming agency-wide strategic planning session, Partnership business units met with consultant Shawn Howell in mid-September to identify strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities (SWOT) before diving into the overall planning phase of the process.
Leaders from Children’s Services, Meals on Wheels & More, the Housing Business Unit, and Senior Services brainstormed their respective units’ strengths and vulnerabilities to gauge what their next steps will be in planning for 2019-2020.
Lending individual points of view for each business unit’s session were retiring CEO Michael Tubbs and CEO-select Tim Thrasher. Also in attendance for all sessions were Human Resources staff HR Director Alicia Higginbotham and HR Coordinator Sharalee Little, and Senior Executive Assistant to the CEO Allison Speegle, all with unique perspectives as long-time employees of The Partnership.
Formal Strategic Planning will conclude in late September with a cross-section of business unit staff and Board members.
