Leading Strategically (LS)
Having a strategy is not enough.
Strategic leadership is needed to achieve goals, drive performance and align short-term action with long-term direction. Leaders face the challenge of getting everyone from the executive team to the front lines moving in the right direction together. A leader's effectiveness is helped — or hindered — by the ability to:
Strategic leaders foresee and drive changes that bring increased complexity and new tensions to the organization.
Strategic leaders influence culture and set leadership strategies to support the business strategy.
Strategic leaders address conflicting priorities and balance short-term and long-term pressures.
Span organizational boundaries.
Strategic leaders facilitate interdependent decision making and collaboration.
Leading Strategically is for Executives and Senior Leaders whose work has strategic implications for their organization.
