Think

Announcement: THINK

To THINK and be is a function of utmost importance. It pertains to the complex, multidimensional, deliberate processes of identifying, analyzing, and synthesizing information in order to facilitate decision-making of the highest order.

  • Critical thinking uses purposeful reflective judgment to reach a conclusion or course of action.
  • Strategic thinking takes a forward-looking, broad, and goal-oriented approach.
  • Lateral thinking explores a situation in ways that are not obvious to arrive at a solution.
  • Design thinking takes advantage of  the ability to combine empathy, creativity and rationality.

 

The power of THINK comes from exercising and integrating these mindsets. And it gains ever greater traction as we progress along the THAP continuum to H for HOLISTIC.

New titles for CXOs such as chief of reason, chief resilience officer, and chief rouser will open the door to innovation like never before.

The world is changing faster now than ever before, and if companies don’t react quickly and effectively to those changes, they’re destined to fall by the wayside. One way corporations can keep ahead of the curve is by installing a Chief Reason Officer (CRO), or so says Luis Gallardo, a global brand and marketing leader and author of the just-published book Brands and Rousers.

Next Level Luis GallardoLuis Gallardo, Author of Brands & Rousers.The Holistic System to Foster High-Performing Businesses, Brands and Careers.

 

Previously posted @ Under30CEO

 

Successful businesses have one thing in common: They change, and they change well. But while change is necessary, volatility can make or break a company in today’s tumultuous business world. Progressing to the “next level” is a goal of many, but an outcome for few; old patterns simply don’t apply anymore.

Previously posted @ Employer Branding Revolution

 

In recent decades, several themes have shaped business life as a whole and executives’ thinking in particular. These issues include the rise of technology and its impact both on what customers want and what business can achieve. Interestingly, history suggests that the impact of technology is often over-estimated in the short-term and under-estimated in the long-term.

Leading in Turbulent Times. Where is the full picture?

 

Luis Gallardo, Author of Brands & Rousers. The Holistic System to Foster High-Performing Businesses, Brands and Careers.

 

 

There are two things we can say for certain about the future: it will be different, and it will surprise. Given the competitiveness of global and local markets, the pace of change in business and the sudden emergence of unprecedented challenges and opportunities, there is an overriding need for leadership that is flexible, capable, and dynamic. If there is one lesson for organizations from the events of the late 20th Century and the first decade of the 21st it is this: it is not simply what we know that matters, but how we react to what we do not know.

Is Market Research Precisely Wrong?

 

Rob Stevens is Director of THiNK Eyetracking. THiNK is a provider of consumer insight.

 

 

There is a fundamental problem with most market research. David Ogilvy, the ‘Father of Advertising’, recognised it:

“People don’t do what they say, don’t say what they think, and don’t think how they feel.”

Traditional methods of market research focus on what can be gleaned from the conscious mind largely because until recently the tools to investigate the subconscious mind were not readily available.
