I have come to believe that “THINKING” is an integral part of a progressive organization. The journey from good to great starts with instilling values and core value that the leadership must stress on is THINKING.
1. Critical thinking – must help in improving what exist not criticizing (critics may beg to differ).
2. Proactive thinking – what should we anticipate and if it’s an opportunity how do we exploit it and if a problem (negative risk) how do we avoid, transfer or mitigate it.
3. Lateral thinking: this is where great organizations set an unparalleled benchmark. Lateral thinking is our ability to do things differently. And creative thinking is a CORE aspect of lateral thinking.
