How can you be more strategic?

Being strategic is an important part of leadership. 

You may know this intellectually, but do you know why it is critical for your leadership success?

Well, because it’s your job!

Being strategic means getting “out of the weeds” and thinking about the future.

Being strategic means thinking about the long-term success of your team and business.

Now, I work with hundreds of leaders every year.

So, I am privy to leadership trends that I see across industries.

Ways to be more strategic as a leader

A common trend that I see is that leaders are NOT being strategic.

Most leaders do not know what it means to be strategic.

Most leaders do not carve out time to be strategic.

This is problematic.

But as always, I’m here to help!

I’d like you to take baby steps towards carving out time to be strategic.

Here are five strategic topics that you can think about:

  1. How to streamline your processes
  2. How to challenge the status quo and not make assumptions about “the way we do things around here”
  3. How to enhance the productivity of your team
  4. How to create an environment that values innovation
  5. How to align your organization’s vision with your team’s goals

As a starting point, pick one of the areas listed above.

You don’t need to think about these topics alone.

Bring your team together and tackle these strategic topics one at a time!

This is a great way for you to create a culture of strategy and innovation –  two key ingredients in any successful team or business.
