 No successful business has ever happened on accident, careful thought and planning are keys to growth in any organization. In this special episode Kyle and Business Coach Chris Oakley discuss strategic planning topics including: conflict deep dives, quarterly goals, managing and accomplishing priorities, and WHY we should celebrate failures.

Chris first met the EntreLeadership team and Dave Ramsey while traveling with and managing the EntreLeadership book tour in 2011.

“You really need someone else there to help with the strategic planning process, because it is expensive time. If you are going to stop what you do, what you sell, what you’re working on operationally, its expensive time and you want to maximize that time”. – Chris Oakley
