Strategic Thinking for Today's Leaders

Categories: TAHRA Webinar Meeting
Presented by Kris Reynolds, PMP
Managing Partner at Arrowhead Consulting

This event is approved for 2 HRCI Business Credits and 2 SHRM Professional Development Credits. 

Innovation: Everybody says you must have it to succeed, but where do you find the time?

Unfortunately, many leaders get so bogged down in day-to-day tactics, that they over focus on implementing conventional solutions to conventional problems. Innovative problem solving takes a backseat to daily firefighting.

In this presentation, Kris Reynolds will help you step back from the trees to see the forest. He’ll help you understand your ruts or “Circle of Habits” and discuss how to break free and unleash the strategic thinker within. Audience members will leave the presentation understanding a new approach to strategic thinking in both their personal and professional lives.

This session is designed to help participants change their focus from day-to-day issue management to a long-term, strategic perspective. The session involves the use of case studies and real-world examples that encourage non-linear thinking and help participants “look around the corner.” Furthermore, participants will not only have a chance to implement the strategic thinking tactics, but also develop a collective sense of ownership of the company’s strategic direction.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain knowledge about best practices that will inevitably improve their bottom line in personal and professional environments. 
  2. Anticipate trends at the periphery of their respective industry.
  3. Reframe problems with critical thinking.
  4. Interpret multiple sources of data to question assumptions regarding a problem's root cause.
