February 25, 2021 @ 5:00 am - 6:00 am


Strategic planning can be vital – life-giving to organizations, and life-changing for participants.

On Thursday, February 25 from noon to 1 p.m., Dr. Carol Poore, IABC/Phoenix member and author, will share highlights from her new book, Strategic Impact: A Leader’s Three-Step Framework for the Customized Vital Strategic Plan, published by Fast Company Press. Poore modernizes strategic planning and offers a dynamic, comprehensive approach focused on a life-changing workshop, written plan, and goals that are tracked, communicated, and celebrated. Endorsed by the Association for Strategic Planning and available online and at retail booksellers globally, Strategic Impact presents a trailblazing, three-step framework, allowing leaders to declutter the typically complicated strategic planning process and deliver a destiny-shaping program in an efficient, budget-conscious way.

Carol A. Poore is an entrepreneur and executive business leader. She brings insight from her consultancy, plus more than 20 years of executive roles in corporate, nonprofit, university, and community-based organizations. She also serves on faculty at Arizona State University in ASU’s School of Public Affairs. Carol is a past IABC/Phoenix board chairman and served on the international IABC Research Foundation Board of Trustees. For more information see

Be thinking about these two questions:

1. During this pandemic when the need for effective strategic planning is more urgent and vital than ever before, how are YOU using virtual technology to help organizations move forward with effective communication, strategy formation, and strategic planning?

2. Also, as we all cope with feeling isolated during this time of social distancing, how do YOU create teamwork, bonding, and shared storytelling – the qualitative side of strategic planning – to create a “Vital Strategic Planning” experience?
