STRATEGIC THINKING SKILLS FOR NAVIGATING UNCERTAINTY

 

Now more than ever, organizations need leaders at all levels who can think strategically. This practical and engaging session teaches techniques to help see through confusion, anticipate next developments, avoid negative unintended consequences, and make wise decisions that hold up in uncertainty and volatility. You will sharpen skills in forecasting, enhance a personal scanning system, learn how to pick major impacts and early signals from a flood of information, reduce uncertainty to manageable levels, and create intelligence and innovation by structured collaboration. A real-life, high-stakes recreation of an organization’s response to an unexpected situation will cap off an engaging day of learning.

Leaders who implement the ‘field-tested’ tools from this course will be immediately more valuable to their organization and be identified as ready for greater responsibility.

BOB TREADWAY

 
Mr. Bob Treadway is a globally-praised advisor on forecasting, strategy, and leadership development who believes that foresight and anticipation strongly enhance a leader’s effectiveness and value. He’s served as top-rated leadership faculty for industry programs in financial services, agriculture, food, information security, and government. Eight US and Canadian universities and colleges have invited him to serve as guest lecturer and adjunct faculty. Clients like Berkshire Hathaway, Motorola, Hilton, the Federal Reserve, Gillette, ExxonMobil, American Express, Syngenta, US Gypsum, and the National League of Cities retain Mr. Treadway to help them develop long-ranged thinking, forecast the environments of tomorrow, form robust strategy, and take action on what`s ahead. Most of his practice is executive sessions with governance and top management in think tank, brainstorming, future visioning, decision-making, and strategic planning projects. He’s advised trade negotiators on the long term future, financial examiners on how to evaluate strategy, telecommunications companies on the uses for unlimited broadband, and wealthy foundations on how to get the greatest return on their philanthropy. While he is called on to make forecasting presentations for a wide range of organizations and industries, participants often comment on the take-away, hands-on instruction that allows them to become better forecasters on their own. As one executive put it recently, "Your workshop, in just one short hour, helped the audience with HOW to think about their own businesses in the future."
