Strategic planning in real estate involves identifying and setting long-term goals for a company or organization's real estate assets and developing a plan to achieve those goals. This can include analyzing market trends, identifying potential acquisition or development opportunities, and determining the best use of existing assets. The process also involves creating a budget and allocating resources to execute the plan. It also includes identifying the risks and opportunities, and making a contingency plan accordingly. In short, it is a systematic and comprehensive approach to manage the real estate assets for achieving the organizational objectives.
One of the most challenging transitions for organizations occurs in the period after a new strategic plan has been approved when it is time to move into implementation. Head of School Alison Tyler and Board Chair Mary Stone join the podcast to discuss how organization and Board leaders can work together to ensure that the important work of planning is translated into reality through open communication, simple monitoring tools, and a spirit of partnership. Learn more about Walden School and the value of thoughtful planning and partnership in implementation.

Life is energy in motion. And your energy defines you. Everything you are, do and become in life depends on how you relate to and manage your own energy. "What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter. " - Albert EinsteinEnergy consciousness helps us remember that we are all energy and everything is energy. Our thoughts, emotions, words, actions, experiences, behaviors, physical bodies, and all the surrounds us. It's energy. We cannot create or remove energy, but we can direct it and transform it. If we become aware and know how.And in the the ever-changing reality we live in, where energy is constantly transforming all around us every day, we have to adapt to and work with that evolution both inside and outside of ourselves. So how can you start? With your attention, you can focus the energy. With your intention, you can form it and direct the flow. The outcomes you desire are all found in these practices. In this episode we dive deep into some practical ways in which anyone can become more energy conscious through real-life examples and actions we've taken with the energy of our lives, and the outcomes we've seen come from honing these skills of guiding and transforming that energy.

This episode of The Negotiation features part 2 of our conversation with Dave McCaughan. Dave McCaughan is a Marketing Thought Leader and Storyteller. He has spent the last three decades in Asia Pacific leading strategy planning and in senior management roles with McCann, one of the world's most successful advertising agencies. He joined McCann in 1986 in his native Sydney, where he built the Strategic Planning function, and since 1995 has been based in Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Tokyo leading regional strategy and communications campaign development for clients like Coca-Cola, MasterCard, Nestle, Cathay Pacific, Sunstar, Hitachi, Johnson & Johnson, and many others. In 2015 Dave launched BIBLIOSEXUAL, which works with brands to bring together his long-term passion for understanding the relationship between form and content. In this episode, we continue the discussion by talking about Japanese consumer trends, youth marketing, and how it has changed over the years, product placement and decision fatigue. Dave then shares his thoughts on how brands should pay attention to older consumers in Japan (a category with growing influence and purchasing power). Finally, we do a deep-dive into the topic of toilets, and how Dave got involved with them. Enjoy! Topics Discussed and Key Points:● Japan's changing population demographics● Manga mongers ● Youth Marketing● Mobile gaming as an impactful medium● The K-Pop revolution in Asia● The attention economy● The silver population and how consumer brands need to engage them● Cost of customer acquisition versus the lifetime value● Why the future globally is all about aging populations Notable Quotes“If you watched Western movies made in the eighties, American Hollywood movies, there was a big thing that Japan was about to overtake the world. Right? It was going to buy out everything.”"The more people got used to Korea as a cool place, the more they're going to feel good about buying Korean brands.”“Statistics say that for people under 30, the number one medium that they engage in every day is mobile games - as in the amount of time they put into it. And it's usually somewhere between 3 to 4 hours a day.”“Sometimes we think of gaming as entertainment. We don't think of it as media. In the same way that we might think of television as media, right? But mobile gaming is a medium.”“The truth is that if you want to get people's attention, young, young people, particularly in Asia, the thing they're paying attention to is this the screen on their mobile phone.”“When you look at the numbers and you find out in nearly every category - yes, it might be an advantage to have a repertoire of, you know, five or six flavors. But the truth is that two flavors will always sell 80, 85, 90% of all your product.”“We're finding out that people seem to be fatigued because they're bored. Right? It's not necessarily that they are really fed up with something or that they don't like [it] - they want something else.”“The single most powerful medium in the world to get your brand success is word of mouth. It is people who like your product or your service, talking to other people about why they like it and getting them to try it.”“Very soon we're going to get to the point where 25% of the world's population is over 60.”“Other institutions have sort of shown that people in their sixties are as adaptable and probably have adapted to more new technologies [over their lives] than people under 30. Because for people under 30, there has been no major new technology for 25 years.”

It is strategic planning time here at Breakthrough Academy. Our 500+ members are all reflecting on the year that was 2022 - the highs, the lows, the lessons…and they're using all of that to inform their visions for 2023. You should be too. Strategy is another one of these terms that gets tossed around so much that it loses some meaning. Most entrepreneurs will make mental associations between strategy and other ideas like goals for the future, well-laid plans, or a list of priorities for the organization. But this still leaves a lot of room for differing interpretations and abstraction. This episode's conversation is with Alex Brueckmann. Alex is a Strategic Facilitator and the Author of The Strategy Legacy which comes out in 2023.

Now that 2022 has come to a close, it's a great time for independent publishers and author publishers to look back on the past year to analyze what worked and didn't work for their businesses so that they can make informed decisions about how to set themselves up for a more successful year in 2023.

To learn more about Breakthrough Academy, click here: https://trybta.com/PCEP88 Download your free 2023 Strategic Plan Templates for Rapid Growth here: https://trybta.com/PCDLEP88 We did a Strategic Planning Roundtable with some Breakthrough Academy Members a couple weeks back. We had over 300 live attendees and tons of positive feedback so we thought we'd release it as a Contractor Evolution episode. Given that you are probably doing some much needed year end reflection and beginning to chart your course for 2023, we thought this would be a timely conversation as well. Moving from one year to the next without evaluating what in your business went well, what did not, and what needs to change is a recipe for exhaustion, frustration and stagnation. One of the coolest things about being an entrepreneur is the opportunity you have to choose where your business goes, what it becomes and why. This is like… the fun part. So if you're not creating space every year to reflect and strategize, not only are you hindering your businesses growth, you're also just missing out on one of the richest aspects of entrepreneurship. If you're wanting to learn first hand how the best in the business take the vision in their mind and turn that into a reality, listen to this episode. *Note* - This was originally delivered as a web class with video and slides, so if you want to see the slides, move on over to YouTube. If you're in the car though, this will still totally makes sense with just audio only. Episode Highlights: What business looks like before you have a plan, and what it can look like after How to build a detailed annual plan, and what data should drive your decision making How to get team buy-in AND accountability A deep dive into REAL Annual Strategic Plans, both before a year starts and after a year in review Where to find the time to set an annual plan when you're super busy How to evaluate key drivers and restrainers to adjust targets See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Today's show continues with Part 2 of our Strategic Planning Series, an annual tradition normally reserved for our Tap the Potential clients. We are thrilled to gift it to you, our podcast listeners. Visit www.tapthepotential.com/plan to download the workbook that accompanies this series. As entrepreneurs, we often fail to take the time and create the space for reflection on the past and designing for the future. That's what this series is all about, and the holiday season is the perfect time to make it happen! I encourage you to pause, take inventory of your well-being, and check in on the strength of your business with our Better Business Better Life Assessment. You'll get immediate feedback and immediate help to improve your quality of life! In today's show, I'm taking you through the Gift to Yourself exercise, which was shared with me by one of my very first coaches, Lisa Kramer. I've done this exercise annually for 18 years, and I believe it's one of the greatest gifts I can share with you. Take the time to do the exercise for yourself! Download your copy of the Strategic Planning Workbook and find it on page 7. Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production. Show Highlights: Step 1: The Gift to Yourself Exercise Use the Wheel of Life (p. 9 in the Strategic Planning Workbook) to identify areas of your life and for each area, list your wins, successes, and breakthroughs for 2022. List your losses, disappointments, and breakdowns for each area. Step 2: (This is the fun part!): Write out the wins, successes, and breakthroughs that you want to experience in 2023. Be specific and write them as if they have already happened. If you did the exercise last year, compare the lists; acknowledge any gaps and, give yourself space to move forward in the coming year with a realistic timeline. Step 3: Go through each area on the Wheel of Life and rate your current level of fulfillment; shading in those ratings gives a visual of the current experience of your life. Focus on self-care (sleep, exercise, eating habits, and “energies”) and pick one area of life in which to make changes; you will begin to see improvements in the other areas, as well. One powerful question to use as an inquiry: “Assuming you have all the courage you need, what action could you take that would have the greatest impact on your life?” The irony of it all: “If we want healthier and stronger businesses, they need to play a smaller role in our lives.” Examples of simple steps forward that you can take right now to help you and your team members Links and Resources: Download your copy of the Strategic Planning Workbook today!

This conversation is ALL about learning to listen to your heart, and discovering how to trust the calls from within in order to live in alignment with the ultimate version of yourself. For so many we feel lost in the hustle and bustle of life. We're led down a path that is setup for us by family, relationships, society, culture, and materialistic items that drive us to find our "successes" in life outside of ourselves. Sometimes we need to stop, give ourselves the necessary space, to slow down, and ask ourselves some tough questions like, are we living a life we've designed or a life we've assumed? These are some deep yet powerful questions we had the pleasure of discussing on this episode with Salman Hatta. Salman is an incredible human and a multidimensional transformational artist who travels the world inspiring people to break free from their limits, while being an example to those looking to live a life of expression, purpose and alignment. Salman shares his transformational story of growing up and achieving many successes after graduating from Wharton and embarking on a very successful career. And still, after all of his material accomplishments, he experienced a deep knowing that something was missing. He felt disconnected from himself, and knew there was something more.There's a famous quote by Robin Sharma, that wraps up this conversation in such a simple and succinct way, that says,“The mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.” In order for any of us to fully discover and realize our potential through all this life has to offer, we must first get out of the way of the mind. And fully send ourselves into the guidance and direction of our hearts.MORE ABOUT SALMAN:Salman is a multidimensional transformational coach, facilitator, and experience producer who travels the world inspiring individuals to break free from self-imposed limits and see the world from a lens of possibility, love, and freedom. Formerly an investment banker and tech professional with an Ivy League MBA, his fancy degrees and jet-setting corporate life made way for a spiritual awakening, and he is now a bridge for changemakers and other professionals to lead a life of personal expression, purpose and alignment while also achieving their business dreams.Currently, Salman is the Journey Director for 1heart Journeys, a weeklong plant medicine retreat based in Costa Rica for heart-led leaders to experience life-changing breakthroughs and transformations. He is also a transformational mindset and performance coach, working with leaders and CEOs to produce impactful and lasting change in their personal and professional lives through belief rewiring, flow state access, and embodiment practices that release limitations to their ultimate potential. He has studied and works with different modalities to influence personal growth, including breathwork, psychoactive and non-psychoactive plants, music, and movement. Salman has trained with The Third Wave Psychedelic Coaching Program, Somatic Breathwork, International School of Temple Arts, Flow Mastery, and Joe Dispenza, and has worked with various plant medicine modalities including nearly 100 ceremonies with ayahuasca.CONNECT WITH SALMAN:Linktree: http://linktr.ee/salmanhattaWebsite: https://www.salmanhatta.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/the.shalman1Heart Journeys: https://www.1heart.com/Spirit Luminous Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SpiritLuminousBaliDJ Shalman: https://soundcloud.com/djshalman

Today's show kicks off our Strategic Planning Series. This series is normally reserved for our clients at Tap the Potential, but for the next four weeks, this series is our gift to you, our podcast listeners. This end-of-the-year time is appropriate for reflection, which is something most entrepreneurs don't take time to do. Reflection helps us determine what IS working that we need more of, along with what we need to stop doing. Let me help you figure out what to let go so you'll have more time for what matters most in 2023. Visit www.tapthepotential.com/plan to download the workbook that accompanies this series. Our series begins with the topic of resilience, which is hugely important for every entrepreneur. Challenges come every day to stretch us, and we are called on to be stronger and more effective leaders as our businesses grow. We are going to make mistakes, but it's important to reflect on those and identify what we should do differently in the future, along with finding out what is working well. Join me as we begin this series with a deep dive into resilience! Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production. Show Highlights: The sad facts about the health and well-being of entrepreneurs–and why we need resilience! Why resilience is about “bouncing forward” and creating more capacity within ourselves Why having resilience means that we allow ourselves to be fundamentally changed by our challenges How vulnerability and resilience go hand-in-hand Practices of highly resilient people: (From Dr. Taryn Stejskal) Vulnerability–Let go of shame. Connection–Don't be afraid to share. “Gratiosity”--Use a combination of gratitude and generosity to acknowledge the gifts you have received.

Staci Hauschild is a director of operations and ClickUp consultant.

Staci has lived all over the world and now calls Oaxaca, Mexico, home, where she lives with her two rescue pups and a collection of rescue kittens. She enjoys hiking, collecting rare tropical plants and cacti, and believes that every day should start with a strong cup of coffee and a good book. Here's what we covered on the episode: What Strategic Planning Is + Looks Like Staci shares what kind of coffee she drinks to help start her day The story of how Staci came to Oaxaca, Mexico, on what was supposed to be a 3-month holiday but ended up staying because it felt like home Staci decided she could be an English teacher, or she could take her skills and put them online When Staci started, she was a virtual assistant, but even as a virtual assistant, she was a strategic partner in her client's businesses, but she didn't know that was a thing As Staci learned more, she stepped into more of a management role, and a couple of years ago, she became certified as director of operations When Staci graduated from Ops Authority Program, she fell in love with strategic planning Without CEOs and visionaries, Staci says she would not have a business – most operators are not great at creating visions for their futures, but they are great at helping other people with theirs Staci describes herself as the back-end best friend who doesn't get the credit, nor does she want it Strategic Planning, defined by Staci, is a process that creates clarity, direction, and a plan - in the corporate world, it is creating business strategies, implementing them, evaluating them, and making sure they're aligned with our revenue goals and vision for the future When Staci talks about vision, she's not just talking about the vision for your business, but the vision for your lifestyle Your business foundation is the most important, Staci says, and it includes your business mission, vision, core values, diversity, equality, and inclusion statement, and your revenue goals After building your foundation, Staci moves to build strategic objectives or the pillars of business, which are money and finance, service and sales, operational efficiencies, team and human capital, and visibility After looking at the pillars of business, Staci takes all the ideas of her clients and categorizes them by the pillars, and then they look at which strategic pillar they should be currently spending the most time on depending on their goals, needs, and visions Next, Staci will break client projects down into quarters and then into each month Each project has an owner, whether it's the CEO, a team member, or a third-party contractor Staci says the strategic plan can work for any level of business, and she helps with who's going to do it and when they're going to do it One of Staci's favorite things is visions – she sees client breakthroughs when her clients talk about their vision When someone says they want to travel more, for example, Staci helps them nail down the specifics like how often, what they look like, whether they are international or stay-home, etc. So they can get clarity around that With visions comes revenue goals, and Staci talks about being taught good, better, and best revenue goals ClickUp + Staci's Offers Staci says she does the entire strategic planning in ClickUp, from planning to communication to creating the plan, and works with long-term clients who use ClickUp as their main platform Operational people usually fall into two categories, those who take the managerial, leadership, and people route or the systems and tech route If Staci gets a client who wants to work in another platform besides ClickUp, she will refer them to someone else in her circle because she wants to be more efficient and have lean systems in her business It's much easier to educate people and share how you can help them when you hone in on your skills and expertise instead of speaking very broadly and wanting to help everyone One service Staci offers is an Operational Consulting Day that takes place over Voxer or WhatsApp – it works as if you're messaging your best friend throughout the day, but instead, Staci is coming it from an operational standpoint The Operational Consulting Day is to overcome one specific challenge you may have – for example; people may be working on a job description for a role they want to hire The two other services Staci offers are strategic planning and long-term Operational Business Manager (OBM) or Director of Operations (DOO), where she comes in as an integrator to the visionary, where she manages the business entirely so the CEO can step into their zone and do the things only they can do Most people don't get into business to manage a business, but that's what Staci got into business to do People are at different stages in their businesses where they have different needs and budgets, which is why Staci offers 3 different service levels in her business In her business, Staci can only take on a certain amount of retainer clients and a certain number of strategic planning clients, so she sees the Operational Consulting Day as a great way to help other people along those services How Staci and her team think no more than 6 months ahead and how this quarter, they are focused on creating a quiz/operational assessment for Staci's community to help determine what area of business they need to focus on and how to do it Your strategic plan isn't a to-do list; it's about the strategy and the goal behind it Staci didn't realize how intensive it would be to create a quiz, come up with the questions and the results, and come up with the email education sequence for each of those results Another thing Staci is working on in her business is creating a strategic planning refresh as a group program because sometimes things don't go according to plan, so she wants to help existing clients be able to refresh their plans if needed Staci's Love For Rescuing Animals Staci says she's always been a cat person, but because she was living all over the world, she never wanted to adopt an animal because she didn't want to put it through the stress of moving every 2 years Once Staci was stable in Oaxaca, Mexico, she adopted her first kitten, but during that time, she and her neighbor rescued and adopted out around 40 kittens When some of Staci's neighbors moved; they left behind a Siamese cat that Staci tried to adopt out, but no one wanted her because she was fully grown, so Staci took her Staci explains that while on YouTube trying to find ways to entertain her Siamese cat, she started to learn more about dogs and says she used to be afraid of dogs her entire life Living in countries where there's a high level of animal abuse and lack of resources, there are some scary dogs on the street, but Staci never knew why they were scared – she started to learn that they're scared and barking because they had been abused How a dog showed up at Staci's house that she fed, how he's never left and is now the love of her life Staci adopted her second puppy after finding her near death on the side of the road and says that she could adopt a new animal every week – sometimes she has to walk away, call a rescue organization, and says she then donates to the organization Kittens are less work than dogs because they are independent and so if she sees a kitten, she will pick it up and has reduced 4 cats in the last week One of Staci's visions in her business is to be able to donate a percentage of her profits to organizations in Oaxaca, Mexico – Staci donates to big organizations but realizes there is an opportunity within her community Staci loves working with people who want to donate their money to organizations or political campaigns because she believes we vote with our dollars and we can create change by earning more in our businesses and doing something good with it Learn more by going to Staci's website and connecting with Staci on LinkedIn Get a $250 discount on a full strategic planning session with Staci that sets you up with clarity, direction, a plan, your goals, and projects for 6 months with a high-level view of the following 6 months Links mentioned: All listeners receive $250 off a full strategic business planning service with Staci.

Nick provides an all-encompassing, definitive guide to strategic planning, inspired by the Empire Elite mastermind group - the complete methodology that'll allow you to turn around a flagging business, scale to an exit in a short amount of time, and build value for shareholders and wealth for ourselves. Check out this episode's bonus slides: https://youtu.be/gOmOaEWecHg KEY TAKEAWAYS Having too much structure when you're in true startup mode, can be detrimental and hold you back. You need the freedom to be able to experiment with agility and pace. Structure is vital when you go from startup to scale-up. You need processes and systems that drive growth in order to achieve predictability. You must have a clear vision about the goals you are trying to reach in order to plan around that and create strategies in order to achieve it. A strong, strategic framework adds value to any investor or potential buyers as it mitigates risk, and shows the proof behind what you have done so far. It demonstrates that growth and value can extend into the future. BEST MOMENTS 'You can use this frame work to plan your business, plan your goals and outcomes, and ultimate exit' 'The whole nature of startup is about trying things out - testing and iterating' 'The whole definition of scaling is being able to grow through people and process' 'You can't hope your way to an outcome' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global To download a free gift from Nick - The 5 Reasons Why Your Business Will Never Get To 8-Figures ...
