Strategic Thinking: A Key Skill Managers Should Acquirehttps://www.dau.edu/partnerships/Lists/Blog/DispForm.aspx?ID=30Strategic Thinking: A Key Skill Managers Should Acquire2020-10-13T12:00:00Zhttps://wwwad.dauext.dau.mil/partnerships/PublishingImages/DAU_Partnership_Banner_4.jpg, https://www.dau.edu/partnerships/PublishingImages/DAU_Partnership_Banner_4.jpg https://wwwad.dauext.dau.mil/partnerships/PublishingImages/DAU_Partnership_Banner_4.jpg<div class="ExternalClassF5C0787A42B6408D9D003C23152E97CE"><a href="https://brainzooming.com/6-characteristics-of-strategic-thinking-skills/24101/">Strategic thinking</a> takes many forms and highlights one’s intellectual prowess in many ways. Strategic thinkers realize that making a decision is not about themselves. There will be challenges and setbacks in business decisions, and it takes a collective perspective to reach a holistic determination. For example, strategic thinkers rarely make unilateral decisions, but rather utilize expertise from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.<br> <br> Asking employees and other managers for their perspectives means being open to valuable viewpoints from multiple sources. Most managers will agree that the easy path is to make unilateral decisions, given one’s position and seniority. But a better tactic for making long-lasting strategic decisions leverage one’s abilities, skillset, education and interpersonal skills to reach an organizational goal.<br> <br> Strategic thinkers use all the tools in their toolbox to gain buy-in from others in the organization. Gaining buy-in means using both logic and emotion, as well as not being timid about thinking outside the box. They constantly question the implications of both new ideas and older, more familiar ideas. Strategic thinkers, unlike tactical thinkers, are forward-thinking and consider the impact of business decisions not just for the here and now, but also for future generations.<br> <br> Management leaders seek advance degrees in order to gain additional knowledge and skills that can optimize organizational effectiveness and drive positive business results. To support this need, our university offers a quality management degree program entirely online. <br> Whether you're interested in the precision of transportation and logistics logic discipline, sport sciences, human resource management, entrepreneurship, or executive leadership - <a href="https://start.amu.apus.edu/management/overview?utm_source=onlinecareertips.com&utm_medium=link&utm_content=content%20-%20management%20degree&utm_campaign=Management%20-%20Overview%20-%20LT%20-%20APU&_ga=2.60872808.551067629.1601329416-2094124618.1582049997&_gac=1.213115552.1600192126.EAIaIQobChMIv9bWy9vr6wIV8R-tBh29eQN2EAAYASAAEgK_CPD_BwE">American Military University's management online degrees</a> are designed to empower you with traditional and innovative management competencies.<br></div>string;#/partnerships/blog/Strategic-Thinking-A-Key-Skill-Managers-Should-Acquire
