Susmita and I talked about Mastering the Art of Strategic Leadership – what it is and how it plays a role in driving business performance.
Strategic thinking is crucial in all aspects of life, including business, non-profits, and governments, as well as personal and professional development.
In this podcast, Stephanie Bown talks about the key to strategic leadership. She highlights the fact that there are numerous outdated leadership models, but it is now time for everyone to embrace strategic leadership. Organizations should think about two things to support strategic thinking.
The first focuses on inclusiveness during the strategy development process. To experience a sense of bind, everyone should be involved. Another thing to do is to encourage strategic thinking within the company. Employees should be encouraged to spend 20% of their time creating and 80% of their time executing. And there has to be some outstanding innovation involved. In fact, a future of job assessment lists creativity as one of the top five abilities necessary today. Getting teams together and taking a step back to consider what our vision and mission are can be a terrific way to inspire creative thinking. This will stimulate our minds, and enable us to perform at our best.
