Strategic thinking can be a valuable skill, both in business and your personal life. Strategic thinking refers to the ability to think about, assess, evaluate and arrive at decisions about the future. It is, in fact, the way in which you use your thinking and would, therefore, be classified as a critical thinking skill.
Leadership is the art of influencing people to execute your strategic thinking

Passing Psychometric Tests book reviews
Brilliant book. Read it from cover to cover. Don’t skip the chapters. I know it can seem patronising, the way he breaks it down, but I’d recommend reading it through.
Very clear layout to follow, questions advance over the chapters and it sets a steady pace. This book helped me immensely to get all the practice I needed within 3 days.
Passing Numerical Reasoning book reviews
Another really useful book by Rob. I will be recommending this to my delegates on interviewing/assessment techniques training; clear, concise and, if you are applying for jobs with a strong numerical focus, the best £10 you will spend! I heartily recommend.
Great book and pretty hard numerical exercises.
A very user-friendly and easy to read guide. Really focuses your mind on brushing up on your Maths skills. The author explains clearly how you can prepare to give your best for a test. Very useful and highly recommended.
Great book, tons of info and test to help you understand.
Passing Verbal Reasoning book reviews
The advice and practical examples will answer all your questions about an impending assessment. The book is easy to read and covers preparation, practical examples and an overview of the usual proceedings on test day. The author also highlights questions to be asked before test day and (I was very pleased to see) encourages feedback after assessment. The recaps at the end of every chapter are great for a quick overview before test day. Definitely a worthwhile investment and sure to put you at ease before an assessment of this kind.
An informative yet easy to read book which helped me get through graduate-level tests to the next stages of application. Would highly recommend.
Passed the VRT for HMRC Legal Trainee Scheme this year after reading this book. Helpful.
Very useful and good practice
The book has a good range of tests that reflect what comes up in real tests – so pretty good practice for the real thing.
Just what I needed to further my career. Now I’ve tried the tests I feel more confident.
Top data careers advice
Ask questions, understand the why and the how. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes, learn from them. Fully embrace chaos and changes, as many challenges will come, use them as a testing environment to try new things. Think where you are today, where you want to be and build your path to get there.
