Strategic thinking is an essential component of leadership and yet for many leaders, it can be nearly impossible to find time for.
In this piece, the author argues that there are two main barriers that keep leaders from devoting more time to strategic thinking:
➡️ First, companies often incentivize long hours, and tethering yourself to your desk is rarely a recipe for innovative, strategic thinking.
➡️ Second, many leaders want people to think they’re busy, so they lean into the frenzy.
To fight against these external and internal pressures, remind yourself that strategic thinking doesn’t necessarily require a large time investment. You may also benefit from documenting where your time is actually going, as there may be tasks that you could easily combine, defer, or outsource.
Start actively working to let go of the “busy = important” frame that dominates so much of our culture. Becoming more aware of the reasons you struggle to make time for strategic thinking is the first step towards overcoming them.
