Strategic thinking as a skill with Greg Githens

In this episode of People at Work, Greg Githens joins us to talk about the importance of strategic thinking and how you can improve your skills.

The ability to think strategically is something that makes you more promotable and is something you need in order to lead a company. I think most of us would agree on that.

But how do you improve your ability to think strategically?

The short answer is...there’s no shortcut to developing your strategic thinking skills. It takes time, commitment, and, according to Greg Githens, working on specific microskills like curiosity, courage, and dealing with ambiguity. The good news is that strategic thinking is a skill that we can all work on and not just some mystical thing that some people have.

Give this episode a listen to get some ideas on how to improve your strategic thinking starting today.
