Who is a Strategically Thinking Leader?
A Leader. This training is about leadership. A leader can prove her/himself in difficult situations, when she/he needs to solve a complex problem or when she/he needs to make a difficult decision. Some people are born with a talent for managing difficult situations, but anyone can learn it! During our training we provide you with experience in form of a demanding game, where your decisions determine whether you win or lose.
Thinking. We will learn what happens in a head of a person who makes a difficult decision. It would be great if under pressure, our thoughs were clear and unbiased. Alas it isn’t so, as emotions and cognitive biases interfere.
The result is often making haste and not necessarily good decisions. This is why the main challenge for all leaders is overcoming limitations in thinking and intellectual short sightedness.
In order to streamline your thinking, we will teach you certain tools which will lead your thinking and help you control it.
