WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A SUCCESSFUL STRATEGIC LEADER!!!

                   Do Homework! Study your business and organization’s successes and failures and determine their causes. 

                 Set Priorities based on what is attractive builds on your relative competitive strengths and then, allocate financial, human and physical resources consistent with these priorities. “Avoid trying to be all things to all people” and “Going Big/ Global” for its own sake.  

                Create a Sustainable Competitive Advantage. Winners are best at something! It is vital that you determine how you can create a sustainable differentiation and competitive advantage. This involves both building on strengths and assessing the current and potential competitors.  

                 Have the right leader and team. There is no one leader for all times and situations. The strategic leadership team must fit the situation and the strategies. The type of leader must change to meet the new challenges.

                Assure that the  execution and implementation strategies are consistent with the investment priorities, strategic direction and competitive advantage you have selected.                                   Create LOW EXPECTATIONS and EXCEED.The financials and market results will vary from one type of business to another and from one strategy to another. It is vital, that you clearly understand the expectations and needs of key stakeholders, including employees, investors, governments, communities, and match the results with these different expectations and needs

                Avoid surprising yourself and be prepared if thing dramatically change. It is important to recognize that change can be positive or negative and that in either case, it can impact an organization. We tell our clients that is equally important to “be prepared for success’ as it is failure.
