Have you ever had the situation where your executive level leaders have difficulty in thinking strategically, and struggle with making complex decisions?
Being promoted to the executive level is an accomplishment that is well deserved and hard earned. Leadership Ability Fairy Dust does not accompany promotions.
Executives must learn how to be Strategic Leaders.
I have developed the Strategic Leadership series to assist executives in becoming effective Strategic Leaders.
The Series will address the four pillars of Strategic Leadership:
- Strategic Thought
- Organizational Power
- Strategic Logistics
- Organizational Structure
The Series Starts with a discussion on Strategic Leadership and followed by exploring Organizational Power. What is it? How do you use it?
The primary task of the Chief Executive and the Executive leadership is Strategic. It is safely navigating the organization into the future. Failure is not an option.
The concepts of strategic leadership apply to all industries, public and private. The future is coming. Are you, your staff and your high potentials ready to lead strategically?
The introductory cost of the series is: $257.00
1. Strategic Leadership – Introduction
What is Strategic Leadership? A chief executive lamented the lack of his senior executives inability to think strategically. People are promoted every day throughout all industries, public and private, profit and not for profit and are expected to fill the position flawlessly.There is no such thing as leadership fairy dust. Senior leaders learn their organizations and their industries from years of experience. They still need to learn how to lead strategically.
2. Organizational Power
Power, everyone wants it. Some lie, steal and cheat for it. Businesses can end up on the cover of trade magazines for having a wealth of power. Some go out of business for not having it.
Diplomacy is the first element of organizational power. It is all about the relationships.
Information, the second element of organizational power, is about gathering, and circulating information. It also discusses the difference between information and intelligence.
Manpower is the third element of organizational power. Does your organization have enough manpower? Are they trained and capable?
Economics is the last element of organizational power. A wise man once said, “it’s about economics…” This video discusses power and economics.
7. Strategic Thought
Strategic Thought is one of the four pillars of Strategic Leadership. Strategic thought is sitting back and thinking BIG!
8. Seeing The Future
Seeing the future is one of the elements of Strategic Thought. This discussion talks the viewer through a methodology to assist in seeing the future. Take notes.
9. Vital Interest
Vital Interest, also an element of Strategic Thought, is essential to determine before an organization embarks on the Strategy Development process. It is rarely done. Why? Most do not understand what a vital interest is or its importance to the process. You will.
10. Strategy Development
Strategy Development is hard work. It is even more difficult to carry it through to implementation and feedback.
11. Strategic Logistics
Strategic Logistics is one of the third of the four pillars of Strategic Leadership. It discusses resourcing the plan, strategic reach, and strategic geography.
12. Organizational Structure
Organizational Structure is the fourth pillar of Strategic Leadership. It is the methodology for assessing the ability to execute the strategy.
When strategy does not seem to be working, the first place to look is at policies. The policy review is a function of Organizational Structure.
There is always more to know when it comes to leadership. You have a great start for your Strategic Leaders and high potentials.
