Strategic Planning for Insurance Agencies
Ready to Plan for 2024?
Every Insurance Agency Needs a Strategic Plan
What if you walked into your insurance agency and you could see clearly that you were on target or even ahead of your annual plan? What would that do for your family life and agency culture? You may have tried to outline an annual plan before to get your team engaged, but it’s never really worked. You, as the owner, feel that it’s simple, but your team is using hope as their strategy to hit the agency goals. If you could get everyone to embrace the same vision and passion for growth―would that change everything? Insurance agency strategic planning will help you get there.
Get ready for the year with a plan and clarity! Insurance agency strategic planning is a big key to success.
Every year, you sit down to set your goals. But let’s be honest, they are more wishes than goals. For many agency owners, they have targets they would like to hit, but for a variety of reasons, somewhere in the first three months of a new year, we forget about them as the problems of the day take over. Hope becomes your strategy and you become discouraged.
You shared the goals with your team, but they don’t seem engaged in hitting the targets. What most insurance agency owners miss is spending more time on the execution of their goals than setting your goals.
The Agency Performance Partners Strategic workbook and videos will provide you with a framework to set your goals, build your plan to hit them, get your team to buy in, and drive accountability until you celebrate when you achieve them!

The first step of a great plan is identifying clearly where you are today with facts not just feelings. To get started we have you analyze your current agency status so we can set the plan of where you want to go!

Many agency owners shy away from agency reports. They are wrong, cumbersome, and difficult to understand. However, to get the agency you want and desire you have to commit to getting it right as painful as it may be! We will help you with AMS360, Applied Epic, Hawksoft, and Ezlynx reporting.

- New Business
- Lost Business

You can’t create a plan without feedback. Your team’s perception is their version of reality. In order to grow you need to hear, clarify, and respond to your team’s top challenges:
- Obtaining Team Feedback
- Team Feedback Workbook
- Rolling This Out to Your Team
- Responding to Feedback
With all the facts at hand, it’s now time to build your plan of attack. We will start by identifying the best structure for your plan. Simply putting goals into place without a solid foundation will lead you to a vicious circle on the struggle bus.
