Thinking Directions

Jean Moroney


Jean Moroney works with ambitious individuals and teams who want to do a better job taking action, thinking on their feet, and crossing the finish line. As a result of working with Jean, they become better, faster problem-solvers, more confident decision-makers, and more reliable and resilient self-starters.

Ambitious goals pose special challenges

Ambitious goals involve the new, the non-routine, or the next big thing. That means you can expect uncertainty, setbacks, slipping schedules, and plenty of 20:20 hindsight.

In other words, you can expect all the pressures that trigger procrastination, perfectionism, and other destructive distractions. If you don't handle these challenges well, you and any teammates risk struggle and burn-out despite all your hard work.

Given all the ways things can go wrong, you need a simple conceptual model to help you catch problems early and deal with them before you've wasted a lot of effort. I describe the problems in my video below on Goal-Directed Action.

What people have said about Jean Moroney's corporate programs:

John Allison, Chairman & CEO, BB&T, writes: "Having participated in the 'Thinking Tactics' course, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their thinking methods. The course is particularly helpful in bringing to consciousness practical techniques to focus your thought process and overcome thinking inertia. Every participant in the course I attended found it to be extremely helpful."

Doug Arends, Chairman, Canadian Bank Note Company, says: "As Jean energetically presents her course in an organized, skillful manner, I listen with a big grin knowing how much extra profit I will make by having our employees spend a day with her being taught how to think better. The attendees come back charged with Jean's energy and ideas, ready to work."

Jim Blakeslee, CIO/Vice President Information Technology, Moraine Park Technical College, Fond du Lac, WI, says, "Since she gave the class a few months ago, I have seen changes in enough members of my team to know it has paid off. I see team members being more methodical and more thoughtful, and I see my direct reports using the techniques they learned in class on a regular basis. I wasn't surprised. I put this unique training at the top of the list for developing better employees. I think every organization should train their employees in Thinking Tactics."
