I was thinking about thinking the other day. I'd just completed an executive leadership learning roundtable with a client based in Kuwait. (All of their executive team was present from Dubai, Bahrain, Jordan & the US. -- isn't technology just amazing!) They are serious about cultivating a culture of innovation and know that it needs to start with the leadership, so they are taking advantage of our virtual leadership development offering.
The roundtable theme was Power Up Your Thinking, the focus of which breaks down very practically the fundamentals of what it means to be a better thinker...which also means better problem solver, better collaborator among other benefits professionally and to an organization. Side note: I know "design thinking" is becoming very popular, yet at its more basic level, teaching folks how to think is an important prelude to it.
So, how is the thinking in your organization? ...among your leaders and managers? Are your leaders teaching, training their folks how to to think? Do they work with practical methods to get the best results? Is process improvement a practiced part of your company culture?
A final note: Many companies want to have an innovative, learning culture, yet don't know how to make that a reality. If this is true of you, let us help. We've been working with companies to jumpstart this for a number of years throughout North America. And now, with our virtual offerings - we are starting to do so globally.
