Purchase Options
Class Level: All levels
Age Requirements: 18 and older
Average Class Size: 15
System Requirements: To make the workshop a great experience for all, you will need:
  • Your own headset (isn’t it the worst when someone is muffled or echo-y in meetings? Help us avoid this by bringing your own headset).
  • Your own laptop and camera, to dial in individually. We have found it dramatically improves the quality of the discussion if everyone is dialed in with their own laptop (camera on) rather than sharing laptops or dialing via the conference room.
  • A nice, quiet, private place to dial in: If you’re sharing a conference room with other attendees, please do still bring your own laptop to dial in. If you're dialing from home, find a quiet corner without folks walking behind you and such (it can be weirdly distracting to see roommates periodically walking behind you).
  • Print out the worksheet(s).  This will be attached in the calendar invite and emailed to students before the session
  • Download Zoom if you haven’t already
  • Make sure Zoom is working on your computer
Class Delivery: This workshop is taught online, with a live facilitator. Once you complete your payment, you will receive the dial in information.
Teacher: Brian Dann

What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

When things move fast, it’s easy to get stuck in a short-term, shoot-from-the-hip mindset. To scale and collaborate well, you and your team need to think and execute strategically. In this workshop, you’ll sharpen your team’s long-term thinking skills and practice tools to help everyone on the team identify objectives, diagnose obstacles, avoid unintended consequences, and involve the right stakeholders at the right times, even when timelines and priorities shift.

During this workshop participants will:

  • Learn the “behavioral units” of strategic thinking and explore research on how to turn this type of thinking into a team-wide habit.
  • Apply strategic thinking tools and frameworks to a real project they are working on now and get feedback from other participants. Tools include:
  • Link maps (inverted triangle method), to map activities to team and company goals
  • Gap Analysis, including determining lag and lead measures
  • 3 Lenses Model – to diagnose root causes of issues and practice systems-based thinking
  • Consequences Check – to practice mitigating risk and build a habit of tradeoff awareness, as well as how to lead skillful pre-mortems
  • Inclusive Planning – to practice involving the right stakeholders at the right time during all phases of setting up a tactic, project, or strategy
  • Identify situations in which they are at risk of thinking reactively rather than proactively

After this workshop, participants will know how to:

  • Pause regularly and ask questions that focus on long-term impact vs. short term demand, org-wide systems vs. individual perspectives
  • Apply strategic thinking habits across contexts
  • Communicate ideas more strategically and inclusively

To make the workshop a great experience for all, you will need:

  1. Computer with functioning camera (so we can see you)
  2. Headset with microphone (so we can hear you)
  3. Pen and paper
  4. A nice quiet place to dial in from
