Building a Strategic Mindset

Do you or your team dive straight into tactics before considering what the strategic objective / problem is?


It is common for individuals across all roles and levels to find it challenging to think strategically about a wide range of organisational priorities.

Strategic thinking and using strategic insight in our work is a crucial skill, not just for leaders but across all levels of an organisation. It refers to the ability to analyse complex situations, anticipate potential outcomes and formulate well-considered plans to achieve long term objectives.

A shift in mindset is required when evolving from tactical to strategic thinking. Tactical thinking often involves keeping opportunities or issues separate and taking concepts or information at face value. TMS works with the participants to develop capability to think more strategically, consider the bigger picture, different options and multiple scenarios, and consider how they can be integrated in a cohesive and comprehensive manner.

TMS Consulting’s ‘Building a Strategic Mindset’ workshop will support participants to understand how to apply strategic insight to all aspects of their role to enhance organisational outcomes. This includes exploring how to apply creativity and critical analysis to make strategic decisions that are aligned with the organisation’s overarching goals.
