For all discussions you are expected to post ONE initial response to the discussion questions described below and AT LEAST ONE follow-up to one of your
group member’s posts. You can and are encouraged to post more than this requirement since we are hoping to create a dialog. As I mentioned earlier, our
collective experiences are one of the areas we as a group need to mine…as in gold mine! For more details with respect to the expectations in the posts,
please review the syllabus and the scoring rubric, and reach out to your instructor.
1. Our road map in the Leader’s Handbook begins and ends with the six practices of leadership. Even though these steps are interdependent and are not
sequential, developing a vision and strategy is an incredibly difficult task. In many ways, if you think of this from a competitive standpoint, you are creating a
future, rather than following one. That takes a substantial amount of risk! For this week, critically analyze your company’s vision and strategy. Look at both
the content and activities and then use the ‘five tests for your strategy’ and offer your opinion on creating a sustainable competitive advantage.
2. Life as we know it is busy and there is no shortage of items and activities that draw our attention and use up our time. As Master’s students, there is no
shortage of things to do! Yet, our spiritual health is incredibly important. Do you have a strategy for managing your spiritual health? Do share but please, back
your words up with His Words. Share with us your go to scriptures and those that help you find peace amidst the hurried environment we live.
