Strategic Thinking is the basis for my coach approach. It’s the kind of thinking that creates insights that are crucial to pivoting quickly in rapid moving times.
This is the type of thinking that looks at alternative perspectives, challenges assumptions and is aimed at creating new possibilities.
Whether you are seeking a career move or responding to changes in your business that need a rethink – strategic thinking will energize a new perspective.
Strategic Thinking is a bit different
from Strategic Planning
Strategic thinking informs your planning and represents the “why” and “what” directly relating to the value and purpose. Strategic planning is the “how”, how you will implement and take action.
Too often we dive right into the how and create task lists hoping to right into action. Naturally, we seek solutions to our key challenges. However, getting right to it – too fast can overlook solid valid and viable options.
Thinking strategically focuses on the ‘what if’ and the ‘how might we’. It is much like the design-thinking approach which tackles the bigger questions which often lead to key insights. It’s a simple process and its purpose is to redesign a better future.
