The Lifeplan has been the best personal & professional investment I've experienced since becoming an entrepreneur. The entire process was groundbreaking and pivotal. I know and understand myself better. I unlocked a new level of trust within myself and I am more confident in my talents like never before. I feel like someone handed me the keys to a brand new car, gave me the roadmap to life, and said "the sky is the limit." Not only did the Lifeplan set me up for a successful year, but I am confident that the next few years of my life are going to be monumental with this new tool."
Strategic planning can seem like a necessary evil. However, our three days with Darren were different, so different, that we all looked forward to showing up each day. The StratOp process flowed with ease, was exciting, energizing, and brought the best out of every one of our team members. Our interactions during StratOp were joyful because everyone's input was valued. Darren kept everyone engaged and his passion and energy didn't wane one time throughout the whole process. Not only did we enjoy the process, but we ended up with a strategic plan that will take The Urban League to the next level.
Lifeplan reminded me of when I first got glasses as a kid. I ran around repeatedly telling my mom how clearly I could see everything. What glasses did for my eyes as a kid, Lifeplan did for my life as an adult. I experienced clarity about my life that I have never experienced before and created a purpose-filled plan from the clarity and perspective that Lifeplan provided me."
Education Voters of Pennsylvania recently held our first in-person retreat in Lancaster with the Resource Equity Funders Collaborative, a group of seven organizations that are focused on the fight for well-resourced public schools for black and brown students. Our goals for the retreat were to build stronger connections among our collaborative members, define our mission/vision, and to re-energize our work.
As our facilitator Darren exceeded expectations! Darren was a skilled guide, leading us through multiple icebreakers and high-level planning activities –he kept us moving! Throughout the retreat, Darren was patient and persistent in helping us wade through challenging conversations and reach a common understanding of our work together.
