Strategic Mindset Workshop

Today’s leaders need to be more than just strategic thinkers, they need to have a strategic mindset. By developing and practicing a strategic mindset, leaders are able to cultivate their best strategic thinking to achieve business goals and growth.

With workforces shifting quickly and leaders moving through constant change at unprecedented levels, a leader’s ability to think strategically is a hit or miss for many organisations today.

Strategic mindset is the powerful point of view an individual brings to the table. It’s a combination of a leader’s:

  • Mindset – their mental attitudes or predispositions which determine their responses to and interpretations of situations.
  • Foresight – their ability to step back to get a total picture of the business and envisage its future.
  • Broad scanning – their ability to acquire and use information about trends, events, possibilities and relationships in the external environment.
  • Strategic alignment – creating, setting and executing strategic direction designed to improve business performance.

When leaders apply strategic thinking and strategic mindset together, they become more efficient and successful in achieving business goals and growth. The impact is far-reaching, from individual and team performance implications, to much wider and longer term impact to an organisation’s vision and bottom-line performance.

Strategic Mindset Workshop

Designed to help leaders prepare for progression and success, this program uses four of the eleven capabilities of business acumen in order to build organisational capacity for setting and leading a strategic vision. 

It explores various Strategic Thinking Models to engage participants in a deeper understanding of what strategic thinking looks like, and then builds off that understanding to provide experiential practice in taking their strategic thinking capabilities to the next level.
