Strategic Thinking for a Preferred Future
Strategic thinking is a critical part of leadership that needs to occur on a regular basis. While it's not a crystal ball, it does help us to recognize patterns and determine what may occur down the road, which then gives us an opportunity to move toward a preferred future. In this session, Drs. Winston and Stone discuss the strategy behind critical thinking, its partnership with strategic foresight and the need for creativity to get not just outside the box, but far enough away from the box to see over and beyond it.
