Our 'thinking' is a product of the culture and experiences we have been exposed to (home, education, community, work etc.). These experiences influence the assumptions, beliefs and values we hold and the 'picture' we have of the world.
As adults our ongoing cognitive development (including decision making & critical thinking), is intertwined with the other biological, social and emotional changes of ageing. Our thinking (mindset) impacts what we 'see' or perceive around us, the language we use, our attitude to change, the decisions and actions we take.
Becoming more agile in our thinking means we can ADAPT and learn more readily, widen the options available to us, enabling more informed and insightful decisions.
The role and responsibility of Senior Team (ST) is to set the tone (or culture) of the 'system', be that for the team/s, organisation, or at a national or international level.
The behaviours, attitudes and thinking (mindset) of the ST directly influence the direction, strategy & purpose of the organisation and in part, how people will behave.
All organisations face challenges in this VUCA world, standard 'logical' thinking patterns alone are no longer effective - we also need to introduce complexity thinking.
An ALTERNATIVE more agile approach is needed , developing agility thinking to support the way our organisations are run. This starts with the ST embracing the change.
