Virtual Training, Zoom
Opening times:
10am-3pm with virtual breaks

In a post-pandemic world, your ability to think strategically is a critical skill. Being strategic is thinking at both the big and small scale, in the short and long term, while remembering the past so that you’re better prepared for the future.

But, when you're managing multiple projects with limited resources, it's difficult to be strategic. It’s tough to keep your eye on the ball when you’re constantly fighting fires. Yet it's your job as a manager to ensure that your work - and the work of your team - align with your strategic objectives.

Strategic thinking is a valuable skill for managers at every level. However, it becomes essential as you climb the career ladder. Indeed, you may not get that promotion or succeed as a leader without being a strategic thinker. Unfortunately, few people are taught strategic thinking. Which makes it so important – and a career and business advantage – to learn how to do it yourself…

This half-day online course, brought to you by BALI and Google Academy Tutor Andrew Lloyd Gordon, will show you how to use strategic thinking to find solutions to business problems and guide the direction of your staff. Based on the latest and best research, the programme will show you how to carve out time to gather data, learn from the past, create a vision for the future and implement strategic thinking.
