helloquence 61189 unsplashDoes your organization have a Strategic Plan? Do you use it? Do you know what it is? Or is it sitting on a shelf somewhere?

At Whitestone Professionals, we take an unusual approach to strategic planning. We start with the belief that God has a purpose for your organization, and specific activities for your team to accomplish. There is a race marked out for your organization, and for each member of your team. With that understanding as a foundation, we work with your leadership team to prayerfully put together a strategic plan. All of our strategic planning starts with teaching the members of your team to discern how God communicates with. Then, our strategic planning coaches will then take your team through a process of discerning God’s specific purposes and plans for the organization and/or for each team member in their specific role.

Whitestone Professionals assist your leadership team to create a map that is customized to your organization. Corporate Strategic Planning also serves as a way to help teams learn how to work together. Our coaches facilitate agreement in where you are going and how you are going to get there.

It doesn’t stop there. Once you have your plan, you need to implement it! Whitestone Professionals can provide ongoing coaching on a monthly or quarterly basis to help your team STAY on track. We all need course corrections; let us assist you in making them.

Looking through a camera lense

Most coaching involves a commitment of mutliple sessions over a period of time. However, sometimes we have just one, big hairy problem that needs focused attention. Or maybe there is a major decision that needs to be made soon, and you want to make sure you have looked at it from every angle and considered all possibilities before jumping off the proverbial cliff. A Whitestone Professionals Coach can guide you through this process. Coaching intensives are single, long-format sessions for wrestling with a problem until you conquer it. We will schedule 2-hour to 2-day sessions, depending on your need and the level of attention you want to give it. Contact us now to find out more, or schedule a session.

Ready to Run Strategic Planning Retreats

…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…

Hebrews 12:1

What race has God marked out for you? Do you need a strategy, a "track to run on?" Then join us for Ready to Run!

Ready to Run is your time to explore what God is up to in your life and career, and how He wants to work in you and through you over the course of the next year. Through guided prayer, look at where you have been in 2017, where you are now, and where you are going. You will map out a strategic plan for the coming year in who to influence, what to accomplish, how to grow, and what to gain. Utilizing strategic prayer, you will have the opportunity to move forward with a clear focus on how God is calling you to invest your time.

We won't just talk about how to plan; we will get out our calendars and do the work of mapping out a strategy for the coming year. And we will do it prayerfully, seeking God's answers to what He wants to accomplish in us and through us.

Check the events calendar for the next scheduled Ready to Run Strategic Planning Retreat; or Contact us to schedule one for your team.

God knows the plans he has for us, and that they are good plans. Let's take the time to meet with Him and let Him show us what those plans are. Let's get Ready to Run!

Every Christian small business owner should make this Ready to Run retreat part of their business plan.

Pam Lindeman, the IEP Advocate

Running the Race Quarterly Check-ins

All of us need some occasional encouraging accountability to stick to the plan. Once you have your annual strategic plan, it's important to actually work the plan. Quarterly check-ins guide you to review your strategic plans, assess your progress and make any adjustments necessary to keep moving toward your goals.

Most marriage retreats are focused inward. This marriage retreat is focused OUTWARD. Designed for couples who believe that God has called them together for a Kingdom purpose, WhiteStone Professionals Marriage on Mission retreat seeks to help couples discern their unique calling as a couple. We take husband and wife through a process of review, discovery and confirmation. Starting with the individuals, we look at who God created and called each individual to be. We look for insights and themes, and then prayerfully seek to discern God’s mission for their marriage.

This retreat is currently in development. Watch our EVENTS page for the next Created and Called location and time, or contact WhiteStone Professionals at 407-605-2720.

  • I have told several people about Dawn's workshops and my ‘ah-ha’ moment. I am eager to attend future events & I am open to learn more!

  • Dawn’s approach in presenting the physiological aspects of how our brains respond to relationships is not only fascinating but key to understanding how we can functionally affect our communication toward others and how they respond to us. Her sound and practical therapies provided me with encouragement and help in improving my relationships with family members and colleagues alike.

  • Not only was I set free from some painful issues, but I left with more clarity, focus and a greater sense of self-worth. I highly recommend Dawn Whitestone to anyone.
    Mark Goldstein President Central Florida Christian Chamber of Commerce
  • "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!"
    Beth Marinelli Owner, Marinelli Auto Service
  • 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.
    Larry Davis, President Internet Revenue Specialists
  • ​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.​
