Be More Strategic in Business

How to Win Through Stronger Leadership and Smarter Decisions

By Diana Thomas, Stacey Boyle

Strategic leadership

Strategic leadership is essential to business success: Strong leaders are those who successfully navigate a great shift: from tactical doer to strategic leader. Regardless of your industry, line of business, or sector, your organization desperately needs strategic leaders. A strategic leader is tuned in to the needs of the business, understands how his or her actions impact corporate objectives, and uses data to make smart decisions. Whether you’re leading a department or running your own company, a strategic leader clearly propels business performance.

 

Building a ladder to strategic leadership: Stephen R. Covey famously explained strategic leadership via the metaphor of jungle producers clearing land. The strategic leader was able to climb a tree and tell everybody they were laboring in the wrong jungle. In this book, you will start out on the jungle floor and build a ladder to give you that strategic view over the tops of the trees. You’ll learn how to:

  • Show up strategic
  • Set meaningful direction
  • Leverage stakeholders
  • Achieve success
  • Make a difference in the areas that matter

Proven approach to strategic leadership: You’ll learn from the personal career journeys of two authors who have taken very different career paths, yet come together to create a proven approach to understanding the big picture of what your organization is trying to accomplish, setting measurable goals, making smart decisions, and continually getting better at what you’re doing.
