It's no secret that today's leaders feel pulled in too many directions. In this talk, Dorie Clark - Harvard Business Review author and Duke University Fuqua School of Business executive education professor - will share concrete strategies to help you sharpen your strategic thinking and embrace a long-term perspective that pays future business and career dividends. Based on her new book, The Long Game: How to Be a Long-Term Thinker in a Short-Term World, Clark shares unique principles and frameworks you can apply to your specific situation, as well as vivid stories from her own career and other professionals' experiences. Everyone is allotted the same 24 hours-but with the right strategies, you can leverage those hours in more efficient and powerful ways than you ever imagined. It's never an overnight process, but the long-term payoff is immense: to finally break out of the frenetic day-to-day routine and transform your life and your career. You'll learn how to: • Create priorities with the future in mind • Understand what you're optimizing for • Make the right kind of tradeoffs • Achieve 'strategic patience' •Place little bets to identify promising leads and emergent possibilities
