BREAKTHROUGH IDEAS: BECOMING A MORE STRATEGIC THINKER

 

Being strategically competitive in today's chaotic and complex global environment requires a different way of looking at how we approach strategic thinking. Leaders who are tasked with strategic responsibility must be attentive, agile, adaptive and innovative thinkers. Four key issues are addressed in this session: Why do organizations need strategic thinkers? What is strategic thinking? Who is a strategic thinker? How can strategic thinking be developed?

A highly interactive seminar, the session begins with an exploration of historical events and its impact on the evolution of strategic thinking. It proceeds with a discussion of an unconventional model of the underlying cognitive clusters that support strategic thinking, followed by five essential attributes of strategic thinkers. The session concludes by delving into the process for strengthening strategic thinking on an individual and team level.
