Listen to Focused Thinking (Part 1)
Listen to Focused Thinking (Part 2)
As a high-energy, high-capacity leader, John Maxwell has a natural bias for action and has to be intentional to develop his focused thinking skills. He committed to put in the effort, and since then his effective practice of focused thinking has had a global impact.
In this series, John shares some of what he has learned to help us maximize our focused thinking skills. The starting point, he says, is to verbalize and visualize what it is that we’re going to focus on. He goes on to provide a process for thinking through any idea.
Mark Cole and Jason Brooks share how they’re applying what John teaches, and they address some of the common challenges to consistently being a focused thinker. Mark encourages us to be intentional in scheduling both proactive and reactive thinking time.

Our Focused Thinking within the Culture can be broken down into System Thinking and Relational Thinking. I believe we Leaders equate Relationships and Relational Thinking as one in the same. So we utilize solely System Thinking in ALL our relationships. The problem is we as Leaders not only never learn and grow in Relational Thinking in our selves so as to be prepared to take action in our Own Relationships, but we do not Pass It On to others so they can grow in RT.
Just a thought as Level 4 Leaders, we must be willing to invest in the training and teaching of our people in Relational Thinking as much as System Thinking.
Insightful perspective, Gary! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
