Holistic thinking is about focusing on the whole, not the parts, and the ability to understand the myriads of relationships.





Holistic Thinking Defined

Holistic thinking is the ability to see things as a whole (or holistically), to understand and predict the many different types of relationships between the many elements in a complex system, and also perceive  the whole picture through sensing its large-scale patterns.

Holistic intelligence is a sage, focused intelligences are its students...

In business and organizations, holistic thinking is often used synonymously with systems thinking. Systems thinking is your ability to see things as a whole (or holistically) including the many different types of relationships between the many elements in a complex system.
