How often have you been down the road on an initiative and thought to yourself, “Why am I doing this?” You’re just like the rest of us. We tend to shoot first, then aim – something that carries more potential for regret as we age.
My guest, Mary Rapaport, is an expert on strategic thinking. Although her work is primarily with organizations, I wanted to tap her knowledge on how you and I can be more strategic in our 4th Quarter planning and execution.
Mary and I discuss 4 important insights when it comes to being more strategic: 1) being future-focused; 2) having an ecosystem mindset; 3) employing outside perspective; and 4) being adaptive.
I really think you’ll benefit from this episode. It will give you back your agency (your ability to see options and choice).
