Where Do We Go From Here? Organizational Direction

Vision sets direction. Strategic Plans get you there.

Remember how to plan a trip before the internet and GPS? When I was a kid, my mom would go to the AAA office to get maps, plan the itinerary with the travel agent and order a TripTik (a step by step map set to your destination). The TripTik is an awesome tool for travel planning as it has all the rest stops, gas stations, hotel and food stops listed for every segment of your journey. It was your guide for the trip. The family would pile into our old station wagon for some epic cross-country adventure.

Now, we wouldn’t trade our GPS mapping apps for anything. A faceless voice that tell us where to turn, merge or exit. It helps us venture, further, faster and deeper into unknown territory. It seems we have more courage, and less fear with the guidance of those devices. We rely on them to get us where we need to go. We know we will be lost and that we will be found.

But what if we don’t know where to go?

Many leaders think their churches or ministries need to go in a different direction, but they usually can’t say where it is. “We need to change something, but we don’t know what.”

Good news. Navigating changing landscape with organizations is what we do as The Joshua Group. We are your guide in helping you figuring out your unique starting point AND your unique destination.  Through Purpose Mapping you find where you are currently and put a pin in it. Through careful listening, learning, praying, dreaming and planning, a destination is determined, a Travel Plan (your Trip Tik) is created that will get you where you need to be. We travel with you, because road trips with trusted friends are better than going it alone.

That’s who we are: a guide, a navigator you can trust. One that will help you “recalculate route” when things change along the way, because we know it is always changes.

From conflict issues, communications needs, strategic planning and leadership transition, we are your scouts, Sherpas, guides, helping hands, and navigators helping you find your way to greater health, vitality and missional impact.

Buckle up friends, the journey is just beginning.
