Please be patient with today’s post. I’m playing with a concept that isn’t completely working, but which I think will ultimately be very helpful.
Yesterday I outlined the fundamental proposition of strategic leadership:
Leaders help people grow. Those people are then better able to fulfill the organization’s purpose.
If this is true, then there are basically three types of challenges:
If you aren’t sure how to help people grow, that’s the first challenge.
If you know how to grow people, but aren’t always successful, that’s the second challenge.
If you don’t have time to focus on growing people, that’s the third challenge.
Applying the principles of strategic leadership can help with all of these.
Which of these is your biggest challenge?
