STRATEGIC THINKING: What you need to know 


Dana Ginn 
COO Gotara and author of this month’s
REACH REPORT on Strategic Thinking 

I was working as a mechanical engineer in the petrochemical industry when my boss told me that to get ahead in the organization, I needed to be a better “strategic thinker.” I was a highly rated team member who had received two promotions within four years. Yet I had no clue how to be a better “strategic thinker.” No one at the university, no one in my network and no boss had ever used this phrase with me before. In our Reach Report this month I outline steps to becoming a strategic thinker.
