Thinking styles are so fundamental one can easily overlook their profound influence on teamwork, creativity, innovation, motivation, market awareness, communication, decision making, sales, business development and virtually every other key determinant of business performance. Change, uncertainty, and complexity are no longer phases or cycles in business; they are the state of business. When you combine sweeping technological advances with fluid markets and an increasingly diverse, global workforce, it’s clear the next generation of leaders will have to be both flexible and focused to succeed, and that ability starts with their thinking—how they think, how they allocate attention, and how well they can leverage and apply thinking depending on the needs of the moment.
