The S.O.A.R. tool encourages leaders to strategize and prepare the business for the future. The tool equips managers to lead Christ-centered businesses by offering effective solutions that focus on the heart of God, people and the business.

Isaiah 40:31 says, “But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak.”

With this in mind, the commonly used SWAT analysis, (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats), needs an adjustment. The S.O.A.R.(Strengths, opportunities, areas for improvement & roadblocks) analysis focuses on the present realities and the future possibilities.

Thinking about the future of your business, are you trying to SWAT your way through it or SOAR into it?
