President’s Strategy Circle

The Circle is a dynamic alliance of individuals regularly meeting to develop strategies, to innovate and to achieve extraordinary results, all within the context of the College’s mission and vision.

The Circle will focus on the Strategy and Visioning function of the College to a smaller, more efficient gathering that is centered on advancing the College with proper fiscal management, effective communications and laser-focused and forward-directed decision making.

The Circle convenes, as called, with each meeting comprised of individuals selected from the following categories:

  • Senior Vice President
  • Vice Presidents
  • Deans
  • Other positional categories relevant to the discussion

The College will thrive in an innovative and entrepreneurial environment where all planning and implementation is in concert with President Stephenson’s Look, Listen, Learn and Launch methodology.

Participants of the Circle sign the Northwest Florida State College Principles of Leadership to affirm their commitment and dedication to the College’s Values and expectations for performance and accountability and their loyalty to leadership and peers.
