Strategic & Critical Thinking for Leaders - April 27-28, 2017


“Thinking backwards in order to move forward to grow your business is what outstanding strategic thinkers do, time after time, day after day.”
- Stephen Haines

Why is it that 75% of all strategic change efforts fail to achieve their intended results?

Because it is not enough to build a strategic plan or have a long-term vision. Conversely, we cannot just give up and muddle through the complexities around us and hope for success.

A disciplined way to think, to plan, to act, and to rethink and replan all over again on a daily basis is needed to grow your business. It is needed to grow your career as well. Planning and managing change are the primary jobs of leaders today, and strategic thinking is the way to do this.

Before there is strategic thinking, however, there must first be a strong foundation of critical thinking. At the foundation is self-awareness, which arises from the ability to think critically, along with intellectual openness. These, in turn, provide the solid base for developing basic business skills including problem solving, decision making, and a firm grasp of both the business and the customers it serves.

The higher a leader moves up in his organization, the more these skills are needed. As they are developed, the next layer of skills are built – the ability to see the total business, to spot the trends and understand the competitive landscape, to see where the business needs to go to succeed and thrive in the future, to embrace change and ambiguity and in the process, to innovate. These, in essence, define what strategic thinking is all about. But it all starts with critical thinking. Those who can master this basic skill will definitely go far in his organization.
