What is Mindscious Consequential Thinking?
Put simply, Mindscious consequential thinking is a practice (or discipline) of thought and planning. It systematically assesses the pros and cons of particular proposed actions within a unique fit for purpose framework designed to reinforce the conscious and deliberate/structured ‘if/then’ thinking.
The overall structure of the Practical Consequential Thinking approach and framework could be described as meeting the three ‘As’:
Seen in this context consequential thinking is one of a suite of emotional intelligence skills. Thought leaders in emotional intelligence, particularly in America, have begun to apply this concept well beyond the educational focus and directly to organisational contexts. The awareness of and capacity with this type of thinking works well alongside practicing empathy, enhancing self-awareness, removing various unconscious biases etc, to provide an holistic approach to better strategic and pragmatic planning within organisations.
To enhance consequential thinking as a practice in organisations is to build upon existing platforms for strategic and operational planning and for risk management. However, it is also to release those disciplines/frameworks from the limitations they currently encounter including opposing and often not articulated forces in teams.
