The fundamental proposition of strategic leadership is this:
Leaders help people grow. Those people are then better able to fulfill the organization’s purpose.
I help people become better leaders. Those leaders go out and grow their people, and organizations are better able to fulfill their purposes.
Principals help teachers become better at teaching. Those teachers help kids become better people.
Vice Presidents of sales help salespeople become better at sales. Those salespeople help their customers get what they want.
Nurse administrators help nurses become better at caring for people. Those nurses help people heal better and faster.
What is your organization’s purpose?
Who do you help to become better?
What do those people go out and do to achieve the purpose?
