Are you a global thinker?
You may agree that most of the common words found nurturing our speeches nowadays refer to GLOBAL and the different forms of THINK, thinker, thinking, etc…
Global thinker / Think Big / Critical thinking / Global Leadership / Global view of human behaviour / Global thinking approach
Loving both from my own perspective, they foster curiosity and instil a wide approach to a diverse, collaborative decision-making and greater cultural sensitivity.
Do you Look at the forest before notice the trees? Set up the goal, gather information and then, come up with strategy? A top-down approach with the ability for multitasking? Adaptable, tolerant, collaborative, compassionate, openminded?
We live in the era of Global Thinking, so sharpen it knowing yourself and fine-tune what underpins the modern global business leadership.
It’s said that global thinkers have right-brain dominant activity, using intuition, creativity, feelings, non-verbal communication and imagination to a first approach of a situation, before giving way to logic, analysis and sequence.
I used to consider myself a left-brain dominant, always analysing, processing, designing methods, channeling step by step sequences and formulating equations to perform better but nevertheless, I realised that to accomplish that I needed an overall approach first, loaded with purpose, information, teamwork and imagination to motivate my brain to think creatively and logically afterwards. It may happen to you as well. As our mantra at Smartcompass defines us, Brain and Heart seamless weaved. Creativity grounded in profound understanding of your business to provide your leaders a tool and skill set as true differentiation in quality of leadership.
