Leadership Planning Agenda and Action Plans
As leaders, you gain valuable insight into the performance and culture of your organization from employees’ feedback during the review process. Whether your organization is on a quarterly, semi-annual or other review frequency, it is critical to process all you learn.
Leadership Planning meetings don’t have to overwhelming. The goal is to process the feedback, capture take aways, and take action as needed to continue to move your organization forward.
