Leadership Essentials: Tools to Maximize Planning

Leadership Essentials: Tools to Maximize Planning
Wednesday, March 28, 2018, 2:00 p.m. Eastern

Attend the live webinar and earn one CAE credit hour.

Planning is inherent in leadership.  Whether the daily to-do list, or the organizational strategic plan, the work of leadership revolves around successful planning. Members of the iCohere Academy identified planning tools as the top priority for 2018 leadership training. Thank you, Academy, for your feedback!

In associations and NGO’s, the demands on executives, staff, and volunteers seem to grow exponentially. Therefore, efficient and effective planning is critically important.

Planning can be viewed simplistically as short- or long-term. Short-term, as in planning the upcoming workshop, is a necessity and primarily tactical. Long-term planning, based on foresight, is the work that builds and sustains organizations. Although short-term planning is essential, it is long-term planning which will be the focus of this webinar. Now, be sure, some of the long-term tools certainly can be applied to short-term projects.

Attend the live webinar to earn one CAE credit hour.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Review planning tools that should be part of every leadership toolkit;
  • Highlight tools for immediate implementation;
  • Share tips for maximizing planning with limited means; and
  • Provide a list of planning tool resources — both traditional and digital.

Message from Pascal Kaplan

On December 1, 2017, the founder and CEO of iCohere, Pascal Kaplan, handed the reins of CEO over to Lance Simon CVEP.

Simon, most recently iCohere’s EVP of Marketing and Sales, has ambitious ideas for ways iCohere can continue serving clients in the future, and he will build upon that foundation of exceptional, personal service that has been the hallmark of iCohere.

What started out as “The Kaplan Consulting Group” is now an online learning and community platform for associations that wraps courses, virtual and hybrid conferences, peer discussions and 18 other modules into a single All-in-One Unified Learning System.

iCohere’s Unified Learning System provides a cloud-hosted platform for professional online collaboration projects and events. Its “all-in-one” integrated system is used for webinars, self-paced courses, instructor-led courses, learning communities, and online community portals. iCohere offers a unique mixture of personalized training and ongoing support through every step of the planning, configuration, and execution process, ensuring that clients maximize their users’ experience and ROI.

Kaplan has had the privilege, as iCohere’s CEO, of seeing iCohere become one of the most respected LMS systems in what is now a crowded association learning marketplace.

Kaplan plans to devote much of his time to local volunteer activities, but he will remain as iCohere’s Board Chair.
