How To Be A Strategic Leader
Think, act, and influence strategically
Strategic thinking and planning habits help create organizational value by capitalizing on trends and making days more effective and enjoyable for you and others.
Great leaders dream of a better future – from business sustainability to growing future leaders, increasing speed to market, or operating with greater purpose. To turn those dreams into workplace realities, leaders need to set strategies.
It is impossible to formulate a strategy, let alone a "best" or preferred strategy, without engaging in strategic thinking"
During this workshop, leaders will explore the critical aspects of strategic thinking, acting, and influence. Participants will use a tool to assess their current opportunities that will drive the greatest positive strategic thinking and planning change for them and their organization.
Who should attend?
Leaders and managers curious about how to close the gap between company strategies and employee commitment.
Leaders and managers who are skeptical of their personal or leadership team's ability to think, act, and influence strategy development and execution.
Why you want to learn it?
Every business is vulnerable to threats. But too few businesses and leaders stop to consider the possibility of becoming irrelevant. Harnessing the potential of company growth takes well-equipped leaders.
"If you believe that training is expensive, it is because you do not know what ignorance costs." Leboeuf
Well-equipped leadership makes a difference. Here is how:
Team Performance: Several research studies have investigated the connection between the leader and business performance. Studies have demonstrated that effective leadership improves follower performance and promotes higher business results, follower job satisfaction, and follower organizational commitment.
Innovation and Creativity: Evidence suggests that leadership is essential for driving innovation in a company. A study involving over 400 executives from 48 companies connected strategy and innovation performance directly with good leadership habits.
Trust and Change: Studies have demonstrated that the level of trust in leadership directly correlates to employee retention, organizational commitment, and support for organizational change. Furthermore, when executives build trust, evidence suggests that organizational change readiness increases.
Internal Communication & Relationships: Words shape worlds. Studies have revealed that influential leaders enhance two-way communication, creativity, collaboration, job attitudes, and organizational commitment.
Leadership Transitions: Leadership transitions, whether successful or not, are costly. Evidence suggests that, on average, 35% of internally promoted executives fail, and direct reports spend 10-20% of their time helping a new leader transition. Successful leadership transitions increase company revenue, have 13% lower attrition rates, and are 90% more likely to achieve long-term performance goals. Leadership development is a leadership transition acceleration tool.

How it will help you
Three research studies from Zenger Folkman suggested perceptions of a leader's strategic thinking proficiency can hold back your career. Three separate studies involving over 1300 leaders significantly correlated the promotions of executive leaders with the ability to think strategically.
In addition to an apparent lack of alignment and influence, leaders lacking strategic thinking find it harder to get the most out of life and work.
