Challenge and question assumptions

One big component of building a strategic thinking mindset is to challenge how certain things are done in your organization - not with the intent to put someone down or establish your superiority, but to identify ways to do them better.

  • Ask targeted questions on specific problems within your organization or your line of work.
  • Learn from how others respond or think about these problems.
  • Different points of view on these problems will not only expand your own thinking, but they will also give you a direction on the areas that are worth investing your time in.
