About the Program:  Strategic Thinking for Non-Strategic Minds
When someone mentions strategy, do you cringe? It’s not that you don’t think strategy is important. It’s just that thinking strategically doesn’t come naturally to you. You spend your time in the here and now, carefully working through the things already on your plate and putting out fires as they happen. There are days you think that it would be helpful if you were a strategic thinker, but who has time to sit down and craft a strategy? Actually, you do and you can’t afford not to!

It is true that some people are naturally more strategic than others. However, with the right tools anyone can think strategically. Come join us as we discuss tips and tools to help even the most tactical among us think more strategically.

By the end of this session, the learner should be able to:

  • Define Strategic Thinking
  • Identify the Four Characteristics of Strategic Thinkers
  • Leverage Tools and Tips to Apply Strategic Thinking Skills
