Why do some strategic plans thrive while others fail? How does an organization know where to start if they’ve never done planning before? Each year, companies spend significant resources on creating a plan, then fail at implementation. If the employees aren’t on the same page, then what kind of strategic outcome can they hope to achieve?

I Didn’t Make This Sh!t Up by Darcy Bien provides an indispensable blueprint of the anatomy of strategic planning and the best tools to drive results. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience and a Harvard MBA, there is a lot to learn about strategic planning from Bien’s no-nonsense and entertaining style. This book is jam-packed with memorable anecdotes that show Bien’s ideas in practice and is a wonderful guide for companies who are new to planning, and for those who have baggage “from the last time we did strategic planning.”

STRETCH SUCCESS STORIES

“Thank you, Darcy and Cyndi, for pushing me through the Strategic Planning process! We are now well-positioned for strong growth. Cyndi helped me take a deeper look into who I want to align myself with as I grow my company and understand the strengths and weaknesses of my team.  With Darcy’s support on strategy, we have a plan in place I intend to follow to grow my company.”

Douglas Compton

Principal, ComptonAddy

“Working with Cyndi and Darcy helped us get out of our comfort zone about changing our business. We gained critical feedback from our organization, key clients and advisors, which helped shape our plan. Their process drives accountability for success, specifically with a strategic scorecard holding us accountable to execute, that’s what differentiates Darcy. Cyndi really helped us focus on our team dynamics and becoming better leaders.”

Barb Yearout

President, Chard Snyder

“Our business is experiencing substantial growth. We needed both a strategy and an investment in our leaders. Stretch helped us with leadership development, strategic planning, and team management. Watching the spirit of collaboration and alignment from our group has been so rewarding. The Birkman helped us understand how we each learn and take in information. We also have a clearer roadmap for success across our business units.”

Jim Ziminzki

President, Crane Renovation Group

“You put us on the road of peer networking, and the benefits have been tremendous for Stober and for me personally.  Only through peer learning have I developed farther than I otherwise would have in my career and in leading our company.  I will always be grateful to you for that.”

STRETCH HIGHLIGHTS

WEBINARS & EVENTS

COLLABORATING WITH GEN Z & GEN Y IN THE WORKPLACE

In this free Stretch Chat we’ll discuss:

Collaborating with Gen Z and Gen Y (no, they can’t be lumped together!) in the Workplace

Generation Z (1997-2012) is early in their career and Generation Y/Millennials (1981-1996) are beginning to take on management and leadership roles (they turn 40 this year!). Learn how different generations are FUN-ctioning and tips that help everyone become more fulfilled, productive, and successful. Self-awareness is essential in any business, but plays a bigger role in the lives of Generation Z than previous generations.

Whether you’re a Boomer, Generation X, Y, or Z, join the discussion and share your perspective!
