1. Executive Think Tank: The Big Picture of Business. • The Business Tree™ symbolizes the organization as a whole. Each major branch represents a component of the company. Limbs and twigs on each branch constitute departments and individuals who keep the organization running. • The Busy Work Tree™ details the myriad of ways in which a person is expected to divide his-her time. When people complain that other responsibilities keep them from doing what profession-career for which they were educated, this tree explains why. • The Learning Tree™ represents the phases of an individual’s life…embodying the makeup, education and culturization that one brings to his-her job. • The Executive Tree™ embodies the abilities, mentoring, skills, sophistications and activities that one must cultivate if he-she wishes to “go the distance” and remain truly successful in business. • The Management Tree™ represents the working style, practices, ethics, values and resourcefulness with which one person manages other people, as well as processes, policies and procedures. • The Organization Tree™ parallels the various stages in professional, personal and career development.

3. Pop Culture Wisdom. Stroll down memory lane, reviewing music, movies and TV shows of your youth from the perspective of life and work influences.
Business leaders are more products of pop culture than formal training. Subsequent efforts to change or modify are often met with resistance. Presenting organizational strategies as an extension of previously-held values gets more support.
Most leaders of today’s corporations grew up in the 1950s and 60s. As a senior advisor, Hank Moore has sat in countless strategy meetings where leaders cannot articulate business philosophies, but they can accurately recite lyrics from “golden oldie” song hits or TV trivia. Being one of the rare senior business advisors who is equally versed in pop culture, he found that bridging known avenues with current realities resulted in fully articulated corporate visions. Many a Strategic Plan was written by piecing together song fragments, nostalgic remembrances and movie scenarios…then were aptly converted into contemporary corporate nomenclature.
This is likely the first to combine the two phenomena and look at business executives’ development through their own nostalgic eyes in pop culture.
4. Strategic Planning-Visioning Processes. Step-by-step process of planning a company’s next 20 years (categories 6-7 on The Business Tree™ ). The Strategic Planning process is only 20% of it.
