Top Ten Traits of Strategic Thinkers

Want to become more strategic? Add these traits to your collection of skills and watch your success soar!

1. Maintain a self-responsible attitude.

Strategic thinkers live by the saying, "if it is to be, it's up to me".

2. Capitalize on strengths and minimize weakness.

Understand your core competencies and use them to your best advantage. Partner with others who excel in the areas where you are less proficient.

3. Effectively use intuition.

Rather then a flighty notion, strategic thinkers consider intuition to be the product of past experience, observations and projections. From this vantage point they are able to develop sensitivity to probable solutions.

4. Have a clear sense of purpose.

Strategic thinkers start at the end. They know exactly what they want to accomplish before they begin and determine appropriate actions based on how well it will help them achieve the desired results.

5. Ability to identify or create better alternatives or solutions.

By thinking strategically, limitations are removed and possibilities are considered.

6. Consistent "what's right" positive perspective.

Strategic thinkers manage from a position of strength by focusing on what's working. This mindset allows new solutions or improvements to be created without jeopardizing an existing competitive advantage.

7. Lead the way, take initiative.

Strategic thinking promotes ideas that are new and often unproven. As an innovator, a strategic thinker creates greater resources and market advantage.

8. Welcome risks -- comfortable with the unknown.

To a strategic thinker, risk is nothing more then information that is not yet fully understood. Risk is managed based on intuition, a "what's right" perspective, and the ability to adapt and create improved solutions.

9. Encourage and promote innovation and change.

Strategic thinkers look for constant improvement. If something is good, they want to know how to make it even better.

10. Able to deliver results.

Equipped with the other nine traits, strategic thinkers can adapt to changing technology trends, market conditions, industry concerns, budget restrictions and basic challenges of life to persevere until they succeed!
