Flexible hours and working from home a couple of days a week used to be one of the things that I most enjoyed about my job. But, working from home under the shelter-in-place order due to the COVID-19 virus is very different. My worry about the virus and its sweeping ef...

In my prior blog post on strategic planning, I delved into why your organization should have a strategic plan. In this post, I’ll outline how to do it in five steps. When you meet to develop your plan, set aside at least three or four hours, if not a whole day. You’ll...
