Strategic Thinking (3 part series)

Leadership Tools for Planning, Problem-Solving, and Decision-Making

Course overview:Dynamic, innovative organizations require leaders at all levels who can think critically, anticipate issues, solve problems, and make decisions based on new and emerging information while keeping the long-term vision in mind. Change is a constant and leaders can no longer afford the luxury of treating strategic thinking as part of an occasional event — it must become part of their daily practice.

Using a variety of tools, Strategic Thinking™ will help you develop your thinking about an important challenge or opportunity in your own organization. You will become more aware of any biases or assumptions that stand in the way of achieving results. You will identify and apply systems thinking, critical thinking, and creative thinking in the context of Strategic Thinking to a problem or opportunity you currently face. You will plan for including and influencing stakeholders in making and implementing critical decisions. Using approaches developed in several areas of study, you will become a more future-focused leader.

This course has mandatory prework that includes gathering survey responses from colleagues; you will receive the prework in your email within two weeks of the course date.
