Strategic Thinking - What Is It and Why Is It Important?
Strategic thinking is one of those things that a lot of people have an idea about, but don't really know the definition of. Strategic thinking helps you plan and solve problems in ways that others might not be able to. It can help you come up with new ideas or solutions to existing problems, which are usually more successful than reactive approaches. Strategic thinkers are also good at balancing short-term objectives with long-term goals. They think outside the box by considering unusual alternatives and generating creative insights into complicated situations and business issues.
Many times we look at problems and challenges and attempt to solve them without applying strategic thinking. We don't consider our own biases, or we reject the ideas of others because they're not what we think. Strategic thinkers will accept and incorporate a variety of perspectives to generate new insights into challenges - accepting that there may be more than one way to solve problems.
Leadership: Constant Responsibility
Leaders, CEOs, and managers are always on duty. They cannot turn it off when they please because what is happening in their organization affects the people who work there every day.
Leadership is about being there when the people who work with you need it and providing support and encouragement no matter what they are going through. It's also about holding yourself accountable if something goes wrong and always watching for opportunities to make things better again (or in the case of really bad mistakes, learning from them).
Many leaders forget they are being watched constantly. Having had the opportunity to follow many successful leaders, I believe leaders have blind spots around their leadership skills. It's important to watch for those blind spots. They can take the form of bad habits, poor communication skills, or behaviors that don't align with what you want your people to do.
