Four questions to ask your next strategic planning facilitator

first_imgWhen strategically planning your financial institution’s future, credit unions and banks often bring in outside facilitators to help them. It is too difficult to navigate potential pitfalls and you never want one person to dominate the meeting. There is just something magical about having an outside perspective help you facilitate your strategic planning process.However, successful planning is not just having anyone facilitate your session. Successful planning is having the right person that matches your unique situation.Many times, a potential partner will ask you several exploratory questions to learn more about your institution. It’s best if you turn the tables and ask them some questions as well. However, rather than focusing on traditional inquiries like price and testimonials, you should make some deeper level queries.Here are four questions you should ask any potential strategic planning facilitator:What book are you currently reading?—This quickly tells you if they are spending time learning. You want a facilitator who is familiar with current business models and strategies. You can also follow-up by asking what blogs they consistently read. If the stumble on these questions or if they throw out books from 10 years ago, that’s a red flag. A great facilitator is a reader.

Angels sticking with struggling José Suarez in the rotation

first_imgANAHEIM — A day after José Suarez allowed six runs in three innings — the shortest of his 11 big league starts — he was penciled back into the rotation for another turn on Saturday.Suarez’s rough outing against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday raised his ERA to 6.57. He has allowed at least four runs in his last three outings. Suarez, 21, has only had two games so far in which he’s pitched at least five innings and allowed three runs or fewer.Asked on Tuesday about Suarez’s status in the rotation, Manager Brad Ausmus said, essentially, that the Angels don’t have many choices.“Part of it is the pitching situation that we are in and the starters we have available,” Ausmus said. “We still have to have a starter out there every fifth day. We do want him to maintain his confidence and that can be difficult when you get hit around. But for the foreseeable future, he’s going to be in the rotation.” Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Ramírez, however, has still not shown the velocity that he had before he was hurt. In 2017, his breakthrough season as a starter with the Angels, his fastball averaged 95.5 mph. Since Ramírez returned, his fastball has averaged coming back from surgery, it’s been 91.0 mph.Asked whether Ramírez can be effective in the long run at that velocity, Ausmus said: “We’ll find out. I don’t think it’s a guarantee the velocity doesn’t come back either. It might not come back this year, but it might come back after an offseason, at least to what he was accustomed to before the surgery.”ALSONoé Ramírez, who has been out because of a viral infection, came through a simulated game without any issues on Tuesday. Ausmus said they will decide in the next day or so when to activate him. As soon as Ramírez is activated, he will need to serve his three-game suspension for hitting Jake Marisnick with a pitch. The Angels will have to play with 24 players for those three games…Related Articles Jaime Barría, who is currently in Triple-A, is not an option to take Suarez’s next turn because Barría was just optioned on Sunday, and he can’t come back in less than 10 days unless he’s replacing an injured player.Nick Tropeano started on Saturday for Salt Lake, so he could be rested enough to take Suarez’s turn if the Angels wanted to go that way. Tropeano has a 6.44 ERA in Salt Lake, and he’s allowed 15 runs in 13-2/3 innings in the majors this season.The Angels also could piece together a bullpen game using multi-inning relievers like Trevor Cahill and Taylor Cole, and then bring Barría back next week.Further complicating the Angels pitching plans, they have a doubleheader on Tuesday in Texas, so they’ll need an extra starter for one of those games.WAITING FOR VELOFive games into JC Ramírez’s return from Tommy John surgery, he has allowed four runs in eight innings. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Adalberto Mejia was placed on the restricted list “to tend to a personal matter,” Ausmus said, without providing any further information. There is no timeframe for his return. Jake Jewell was recalled to take Mejia’s spot on the roster….The Angels optioned José Rodriguez, who had pitched four innings on Monday night. That created the opening for Griffin Canning to be activated from the injured list.UP NEXTAngels (LHP Dillon Peters, 2-1, 3.45) vs. Pirates (Chris Archer, 3-8, 5.23), 5:07 p.m., Fox Sports Westcenter_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
