Strategic Thinking for Leaders – “Strategic Thinking for Leaders” arms attendees with an extremely effective and valuable tool for making complex decisions. Strategic thinking is the ability to see the total enterprise, spot trends, align key stakeholders, and lead the organization into the future. Leaders who are strategic thinkers are better at anticipating the short and long-term effects of decisions through challenging assumptions, weighing risks and learning from experiences. (1 day)

I believe that you learn better when you enjoy yourself.
As well as when you apply, analyze, evaluate and synthesize information; there's variety in delivery (exercises, videos, games, etc.) and the content and design are regularly updated.
All of this with a trainer who is flexible and has a good sense of humour.
