Let's start with the definition of strategic thinking, so we're all on the same page before we read the article. Strategic thinking is how people think about, evaluate, view and create the future for themselves and others. It is much more than responding to and responding to both everyday and long-term problems, opportunities and new reality. It's preventative, not responsive and focuses on creating a better future and increasing value. Strategic thinking always involves a change and imagines the results we can achieve in the future.
So what makes a strategic thinker? What are the main characteristics of strategic thinking? Here are eight (8) key characteristics of strategic thinkers from my perspective as a strategic thinking of business coaches.

Characteristic # 4: distinguish between the ends (what) and the way (how).
They define and organize results on many levels before deciding how to succeed.
