What's the difference between PURPOSES and PLANS?

PURPOSE asks "Why?" PLANS ask "What, how, when, where, and with whom?" Plans provide the bones, the infrastructure on which to build and grow. Plans give us a track to run on.

At WhiteStone Professionals, we believe in planning. Our retreats, group coaching and quarterly check-in services are designed to help you make plans, execute, monitor and yes, even change plans.

Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.

Proverbs 15:22 NIV

A WhiteStone Professionals Strategic Planning Retreat will guide you and your team to review your past year, assess your present status, and lay out goals and strategies for the coming year. But then, any consulting company will probably do that. We add something unique. We do it prayerfully. We teach you to connect with God through listening prayer so that you can discover HIS plans for you, your team and your organization. To us, it just makes sense. If God already knows the plans that He has for us, doesn't it make sense to find out what they are? In our experience, life is a whole lot better when we align ourselves with God's plans.

But plans aren't just annual. We need to break them down into chunks we can get our arms around. Quarterly Check-ins are mini-strategic planning retreats. We meet once a quarter to look back at the previous quarter and forward to the next one. Then get serious about putting on your calendar what you need to do monthly, weekly, and daily for the next 90 days.

Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 19:21 NIV

Contact us now so we can help you to make and implement the plans you need to reach your goals.

Once your plans are in place, then it's time to look at your PEOPLE.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, " plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

  • "I went to Dawn’s Ready-to-Run Strategic Planning conference knowing what our challenges were but felt lost as to how to make plans to tackle them. I left feeling really excited about where our business could go and with a plan to lead our staff to get it there. Within a month after the conference we were already able to set in place some crucial changes that helped our business. Efficiency improvements are a huge takeaway for us!"

  • It has been our privilege to partner with Dawn Whitestone to build her company’s website. In so doing we have read, edited and challenged every word on the site. It is clear to us that Whitestone takes a much different and most needed approach to business coaching and training. I hope you sense not only the words you read but the heart of the professional behind the words…we certainly did! For any company seeking a “higher” path to business success, call them, you won’t be disappointed.

  • ​I began a One-Day Strategic Prayer Intensive with a general plan and direction for a new initiative I was to launch in our organization. At the end of that day I had detailed goals and specific strategies to meet those goals. I had no idea so much could be accomplished in one day. The time I spent with Dawn was incredible. It literally set the foundation for everything I am now doing.​
