Wayne State Alumni Association is offering exclusive access to a range of online webinars. Join us for the next webinar, "How to Be a Long-Term Thinker in a Short-Term World".

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). How can we break out of this endless cycle and create the kind of interesting, meaningful lives we all seek? In this deep-dive webinar, Dorie Clark - Harvard Business Review author and executive education professor – will share concrete strategies to help you sharpen your strategic thinking and embrace a long-term perspective that pays future 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.
