Strategic Business Leadership

What is Leadership?

Alan Keith is quoted as saying that leadership is “ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen.”  In our article "What is a Leadership?" we define a leader as someone who sees the future and genuinely helps people and the organization to grow and succeed.

So, What is Strategic Business Leadership?

There are four critical components of strategic business leadership skills needed to succeed in today's world:

  • Strategic leadership
  • Strategy development
  • Strategic planning
  • Strategy execution

We define strategic leadership as the foresight, values, characteristics and skills that best help people and organizations to ultimately reach their fullest potential.

Strategy development involves defining "what" the organization will focus on. This entails define the unique value that the organization will provide to its target audience.

Strategy development and strategic planning are related but arguably different.  Strategic planning involves the "how."  It involves planning out how to best make the strategies a reality.

Strategic execution, the most challenging part of strategy,  involves leading and holding the organization and people accountable in a way that both inspires and achieves results.
