"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected."
To harness the strategic talent within leaders and leadership teams through developing a heightened sense of awareness of what strategic thinking is, the necessary mindset, skills, and capabilities it musters, and to how to apply and leverage this skills through the active application of tools and process.
Industry leaders seemingly come and go, build momentum and widen their economic moat, defend their heartlands and boldly pursue new markets and opportunities, only to see value quickly evaporate in the face of competitive innovation, fickle consumers, and marked shifts in demand.
Leaders who win are those with distinctive leadership edge - the ability to access and understand information faster, make decisions with urgency, and most importantly, to amass and focus their resources quickly to implement, much to the delight of their customers and the chagrin of competitors. This creates resilient and nimble organizations. Resilience is the uncanny ability to anticipate where the value will be, interpreting societal attitudes, preference shifts, shifts in market equilibrium, and the potential for new technologies. Leaders who have vision, are steeped in opportunism, and possess the will to seize strategic advantage with bold strokes will win.
Thinking strategically is not conventional strategic planning, nor the simple distillation of your business plan. Strategic Thinking is a discipline unto itself, the forte of thought leaders who are passionate about who their company is and what it can become who understand the intricacy of their business model, and where new value pools may be possible. The strategic thinker harnesses both creative and critical thinking styles, reflect on, and reframe the obvious, hypothesize new value propositions that can capture the hearts and minds of new stakeholders.
