Strategic thinking is a valuable asset to cultivate. So how do you keep it going? You need to strive to make it a habit—here's how.
- Strategic thinking is a valuable asset to cultivate. In fact, as you ascend in your organization, it's essentially mandatory, but no one teaches you this. And most people don't even realize they need to learn it themselves. We're human, which means we often have good intentions, oh yeah, strategic thinking, but sometimes fall short. That's why we have to keep reminding ourselves about our intentions and work to develop habits so that isn't such an effort to make it happen. Try some small steps today. Create a recurring event in your calendar once a week for strategic reflection time.
Or reach out to a friend who might be a good accountability partner. Making the effort today, to steep yourself in strategic thinking, is a competitive advantage that can pay major dividends for you, your team, and your company.
