Mastering Strategic Thinking Skills for Positive Impact in Your Organization by Stephanie Angelo
Leaders, Managers and Human Resource Professionals are often confused by what is, and is not, Strategic Thinking. They may fall easily into traps and make expensive mistakes to the detriment of their company. This session will help attendees grasp the Strategic Thinking differences that will help them have a positive impact on the organization’s bottom line and strategic goals and objectives.
Business Coach J. Glenn Ebersole said, “Strategic thinking is a process that defines the manner in which people think about, assess, view, and create the future for themselves and others. One can apply strategic thinking to arrive at decisions that can be related to your work or personal life.”
But the question is – Do you? Are you looking at the “bigger picture” of possibility when making decisions? Are you settling for the easiest choice? How can you maximize critical thinking skills for best results?
Through discussion and examples attendees understand what a strategic thinker is. They compare and contrast the successes and failures of those who didn't apply strategic thinking techniques. Attendees experience several activities to develop their personal skills and receive a journal for tracking success.
Here’s what you’ll discover in this session:
- How you benefit as a strategic thinker
- Competitive business advantages of Strategic Thinkers
- What is a Strategic Thinker vs. a non-Strategic Thinker
- Tales of non-strategic thinkers
- Skills needed
- Tips for Strategic Thinking
- Skill practice
- How to improve your skills
- Success tales of strategic thinkers
