This Episode: How To Be Strategic

In the first of a series of “How To” episodes, Lucinda examines the ways in which we can be more strategic in our thinking by focussing upon the long term gains ahead, and effectively identifying your organisation’s goals.

Key Takeaways

  • Strategic thinking is about thinking long term – planning ahead instead of thinking about the short term. We need to find the balance between effective planning for the future, and dealing with operational issues from day to day.
  • Look to understand the long term goals and strategies for your organisation, what challenges or obstacles need to be addressed, and be aware of the external environment.
  • There are solutions that are not necessarily blunt ones, and it is our responsibility as HR professionals to come up with more creative strategies that are in everyone’s interest.
