Description

Take your leadership to the next level.

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 team 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 workers clearing a jungle. 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:

  • Develop your strategic skills
  • Set meaningful direction
  • Build a strategic plan
  • Make decisions to win

Proven approach to strategic leadership: You'll get the training straight from the personal career journeys of two business women who have decades of experience and education that come together to create a proven approach to understanding the big picture of what your organization is trying to accomplish and how to be an effective leader.
