It’s no secret that today’s professionals feel pulled in too many directions. Too often, we find ourselves racing from one emergency to another, without the time to think strategically (or even breathe).

In this fireside chat, Dorie Clark - Harvard Business Review author and Duke University Fuqua School of Business executive education professor – will discuss concrete strategies to help you sharpen your strategic thinking and embrace a long-term perspective that pays future business and career dividends. You’ll learn how to:

  • Create priorities with the future in mind
  • Understand what we’re optimizing for
  • Make the right kind of tradeoffs
  • Achieve ‘strategic patience’
  • Place little bets to identify promising leads and emergent possibilities
