Course Description:

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused tremendous disruption and led to significant, long-term market uncertainty. In this session, you’ll gain the foundational strategic thinking skills to preserve and expand your business in these turbulent times. Strategic thinking is the ability to think on a big and small scale, long and short term, and into the past and the present. While strategic thinking is a valuable skill for everyone in an organization, it becomes increasingly essential as you ascend the ladder. In fact, you will have a difficult time being promoted or succeeding as a leader without it. Yet, no one formally teaches strategic thinking—so it's critical to take the initiative and learn how to do it yourself. This course teaches managers and leaders how to use strategic thinking to guide the direction of their teams and come up with solutions to key business problems. For those who are not yet leaders, you will learn how to cultivate and develop this skill to help you be promoted faster and to just be more effective and add value to any work you are involved in. This session shows you how to carve out time to think about strategy, gather data, learn from the past, create a vision for the future, and implement strategic thinking within your team.
