How to Think Like a Leader

Make three big mental shifts.

While much of leadership development focuses on doing, leadership effectiveness really starts with thinking, according to strategy+business.

The three big mental shifts current and aspiring leaders must make to develop their abilities revolve around:

1. Complexity. Similar inputs into mechanical systems may result in similar outputs. But people require more nuance to motivate and engage.

2. Clarity. Recalibration of goals is a constant challenge that you must meet to deliver top performance.

3. Capacity. Take ownership of your own development. Don't just rely on training resources or opportunities through your company.
