Strategic Leadership & People Management:

Leadership has often been linked with the process of influence. Strategic leadership consequently must then be the logical result of that influence on the organization’s long term success and viability. It’s been said that the main aim of strategic leadership is strategic productivity.

The ability to learn and adapt plus change when required becomes critically vital for sustainability. And organizations change when their people change first!

Being only humans, leaders cannot hope to learn fast enough and then do enough on their own to effectively define, shape and execute the organization’s direction. If leaders are to be successful, it is obvious they must rely on the people. This is where People Management fits in….

And all the preceding reinforces the notion that leaders need to focus on both the analytical as well as the human dimensions of strategy to lay the foundation for building winning organizations that can define, commit, adjust and adapt their strategy quickly as needed.
