As a leader the need for strategic thinking is paramount to the success of your personal and leadership goals.

All leaders need to think in a strategic manner, however many unfortunately do not have a process for delivering strategy.

With globalisation on our doorstep, every person with a computer has the need to make strategic decisions in the most effective and least disruptive manner.  It has become extremely important, especially for those who are the decision makers to understand how to effectively create, develop, execute and manage and maintain great strategic plans and projects.

This course assists you to identify your personal decision making strategies as well as your leadership decision making strategies highlighting gaps that exist between them both. In identifying the gaps and the different success rates you will be able to craft a defined decision making process that removes emotions, knee jerk reactions and ego.

You will identity your motivating factors, what is useful information, new insights into yourself, the leadership agility you are representing and the need for collaboration within your processes. The tool of reflective decision making and gap identification will add another dimension to your strategic thinking giving you the tools to identify the right style of person with whom you would discuss and seek advice from. You will be able to identify their strengths and weaknesses and how these will hinder or assist you enabling to cut out the time wasters in your life.  This will go a long way in creating an outcome orientated decision making strategic thinker. Included in the course is a list of suggested readings that will assist you in opening your mind to the different internal and external drivers for your current decision making processes and the opportunity to change these where required.

Now that you have identified your career bird, this course will give you the information needed to create the ultimate strategic team, decision makers and visionaries. By identifying the birds you flock with and those birds who’s traits you lack you will be able to create this balanced team. This will ensure that you have the support for the changes required to make decisions that will guarantee the longevity of the business the purity of the brand and the drive to take the business to the next level.
