Excellent comment and story, Patricia. So glad the North won.:-)
Absolutely, Jacqueline. In Scandinavia it's gone so far with empathy that leaders are afraid to take tough decisions.
Agree completely that leaders should be both empathetic and firm, Susan. But, apart from Sweden to some degree, what I have seen all over the world is that they are either empathetic or firm. In most parts of the world just firm. But then again, most leaders are not leaders so that's to be expected.
That happens to me as well, Beth. It's because we connect with our subconsious. Those ideas are often fantastic.
Absolutely, William, if you don't implement your strategies they will not work:-)
Glad you also find time for strategic, thinking, Susan.
Sounds like a good idea, Erica.
Glad you agree with me, Michele. Taking a walk works very well for me and also when I'm falling asleep or waking up. Or even in the middle of the night I suddenly know what to do.
Strategic thinking goes a long way towards succeeding not only in business but with everything in life.
Do people really get annoyed when you say you need to think about something, Jacqueline. That's often essential for all human beings. If not, we make mistakes. If it's an email or message of some sort just don't reply until you have thought about it. If it's a phone call. Just say you are in a meeting and will get back to them as soon as you can:-)
