CoachingOurselves Conference with Henry Mintzberg, Montreal, Sept. 10-11
You are hereHome / Strategic Blindspots
Is your decision making guided by assumptions which are out of touch or out of date? Organizations invest a lot of time and energy in strategy but invalid beliefs and biases may be derailing your success. These strategic blindspots distort your perception of competitive reality, so that even the most seasoned managers may fail to foresee major events affecting the environment. The consequences for your organization can be frustrating at best and disastrous at worst.
In this topic, you will be introduced to some of the most common organizational blindspots. You will then investigate a number of your taken-for-granted assumptions and discuss how your organization can move beyond them.
The objectives for this session are to:
- Increase your awareness of strategic blindspots and specifically those most prominent in your organization.
- Investigate unexplored opportunities.
- Decide how you can capitalize on your insights.
Here's How it Works
A CoachingOurselves module is used by a group of 4-6 managers to guide a 90 minute peer-coaching session. One participant plays the role of facilitator. Working through the module one page at a time, the team reflects on their own experiences guided by the content, questions and exercises. There is no pre-work and no laptops, and the meetings are held anywhere managers normally hold work meetings. A program involves six modules, one per month.
The result is managers learning from, and coaching each other, and the organization developing capacity to develop itself. CoachingOurselves peer-coaching programs deliver cost-effective leadership development to over 15,000 managers in organizations around the world.
