It validated what I already know about (and reminded me to continue) seeking insight and understanding across functional groups. All of our work is interrelated, so we need to consult with each other to find the best, strategic solutions.
I appreciated the content explaining strategic thinking as a process and comes in different phases. In addition, creating the right environment is essential for cultivating strategic solutions.

I beleive that great strategic thinking also clears out negative thoughts because negativity has no options and strategic thinkers always are looking for the other options.
