The Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce is proud to bring you this monthly program to help you grow and reach your goals in a supportive and energizing environment! Each month, a maximum of 20 business leaders will come together to discuss various topics in a virtual roundtable environment. An experienced facilitator will run each meeting, but the focus is on you! Bring your issues, skills, and experience to the table as the group members help each other work through challenges, provide constructive feedback, and share best practices for greater success!
A typical agenda will include brief introductions, 45-50 minutes of facilitated discussion on a given topic, and 5-10 minutes to reflect on goals or what you will do next given the conversation.
This month's focus: Business Planning & Goals
In his book “Le Petit Prince”, Antoine de Saint-Exupery says, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” Join us for a structured, short workshop on business planning and goals. What are some of the hardest parts of planning for you and what aspects can help you be more effective in your planning and execution? We’ll look at the key elements of planning methodologies that result in robust, easily understood, and executable plans aligned with the results you want to achieve. If you don’t have a plan in place, this will help you get started. If you do have a plan in place, this workshop can help you assess it before launching into the new year.
