Lennon's side secured one of the most memorable results in the club's history when they won 3-2 at Hampden on Sunday to reach the Scottish Communities League Cup final. And Lennon wants to make sure the result was no flash in the pan.
Lennon said: "I'm a very proud man and I'm absolutely honoured to serve this wonderful football club. It's been all about how we develop. We have one eye on the future bringing through kids, and one eye on the immediate future. We are trying to progress from where we have come from."
He added: "We'll see some giant steps at times, some small steps and one or two steps going back. That can happen in any organisation whether it's a football club or a company you're running or whether you're still studying. Everyone has always got to look at the bigger picture."
Inverness had contrasting fortunes in the other semi-final, losing to 10-man Hearts on penalties.
But they remain second in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League and manager Terry Butcher reminded his players they had plenty to look forward to.
"The players are itching to get back out playing," Butcher said. "We had a good chat on Monday. We all learnt a lot from it, it was a great experience for us.
"We have to take the positives out of the game and take them forward into this St Mirren game.
"We didn't lose the game. After 120 minutes we were level with them and we missed a penalty. That's the thin line between success and failure.
"It hurt a lot but we are over the pain now and we are looking forward to more good times."
