What is your Need?

Do you want to be more strategic whilst at the same time getting day to day tasks done?

Course 2: The Strategic Thinking Toolkit

Strategic Thinking is a key skill for both career development and leadership. For your career, it helps you direct your work and relationships in ways that can make the most impact. In leadership roles, it helps you get others focused on a vision and goals which can make a big difference to the team and the organisation.

However, we often hear about the frustration in not having time to think strategically. Often this is due to the pressure of day-to-day work, a lack of process for thinking strategically and a sense that there isn’t enough time to do it.

This course will give you 2 vital strategic thinking tools (The SAVI Strategic Thinking Canvas and the Network Mapping Process), and the space to develop a strategic thinking mindset. You will have the opportunity to use the tools for an idea that’s really important to you.

The Course also comes with a Strategic Thinking Webinar which provides an opportunity to engage with the course Tutors and other participants in a lively 90 minute session. Four Webinar options are offered per year.
