Unleashing the Strategic Mindset: Building More Proactive and Responsive Teams | Breakfast Webinar

October 19, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

The last several years have forced organizations into a reactive mode. A constantly shifting environment requires organizations to adapt, respond, react.  But constantly reacting is inefficient: it doesn’t allow an organization to thoughtfully plan, deploy resources on more strategic opportunities, and it creates waste as well as stress for the workforce.  As many sectors and industries start to “stabilize,” organizational leaders should begin to shift from reacting to a more strategic mindset.

The Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence and our partner, The Performance Excellence Network, are  pleased to host an online webinar discussion on Thursday, October 19: “Unleashing the Strategic Mindset: Building More Proactive and Responsive Teams.”  The discussion will feature Mary Rapaport, Chief Xceleration Officer, Strategist, and Strategy Coach at Xcelerate. Mary will guide you through the essence of a strategic mindset, exploring its significance and why it has become a critical aspect of modern business success.

In this session, we will delve into the historical backdrop of the decline in strategic thinking, examining the economic, social, and other factors that have contributed to the de-prioritization of strategic thinking in the workplace. Mary will share practical and actionable approaches for leaders who are eager to nurture a more strategic team. You will gain insights and ideas for developing your team’s ability to think and operate strategically, empowering you to take immediate steps towards building a forward-looking, proactive, and responsive workforce.

During the discussion, you will have the opportunity to reflect on where strategic thinking and performance can benefit your organization. Additionally, you will participate in a strategic thinking learning activity that can be applied with your own teams.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gain familiarity with strategic and critical thinking skills and understand their importance in modern business success.
  • Learn about the economic, social, and other factors that have hindered the growth of strategic thinkers in business.
  • Discover new approaches for strengthening the strategic thinking capacity of your teams.
  • Take practical and actionable steps to build a more forward-looking, proactive, and responsive team.
