Strategic Thinking is a skill executives demand of their direct reports, yet it’s not just a skill for executives and senior staff. Liz Weber will share how learning to think strategically is a critical skill for all employees – front-line to executive staff- when you’re working to create a strategic, flexible, and aligned workforce and organization
As a senior leader, you know the progression of skill development from strategic thinking, to strategic planning, to strategic leadership is imperative to your success. Leadership is an ever-changing process, but the key to knowing what skill to enhance or change and when to change requires thinking and planning – strategically. This program and Liz’s models on strategic planning and strategic leadership will show you how.
If you’ve ever wondered:
- How do we think strategically as leaders?
- What’s the difference between strategic thinking, development, management, and planning?
- If we think “outside the box,” how do we know what’s “in the box”?
- How do we create a vision and strategic plan for our companies, and do we need plans for all departments too?
- How do I get my team on-board with the plan to help with its execution?
Join us to learn what simple steps you can take to develop your own and others’ strategic thinking skills, learn to create clear, aligned strategic plans, and share the focus and responsibility with every team member!
Session Includes: Seminar, Breakfast, Lunch, Parking, and Supplementary learning resources.
