Strategic Leadership Training Classes

Strategic Leadership Training Classes: Strategic leadership refers to a manager’s potential to express a strategic vision for the organization, or a part of the organization, and to motivate and persuade others to acquire that vision.

Strategic leadership can also be defined as utilizing strategy in the management of employees.

The main objective of strategic leadership is strategic productivity. Strategic leadership is also about developing an atmosphere where employees understand company goals in the context of their own jobs while at the same time following their own idea to help an organization reach its goals.

Strategic leaders see the big picture and know that it’s to everyone’s advantage to practice a leadership style that stresses inventiveness, perception and planning to assist an individual in realizing goals and objectives. Generally, you find that strategic leadership emphasizes a reward and incentive system for encouraging productive employees for superior performance.

Some of the traits common to effective strategic leaders, include:

  • Self-awareness
  • Compassion
  • Motivation
  • Insight
  • Fluidity
  • Self-control
  • Loyalty
  • Articulacy
  • Firm grasp of when to delegate and authorize

It would appear that there is a shortage of qualified strategic leaders as illustrated by a PwC study of 6,000 senior executives. Respondents were asked a series of questions designed to reveal their leadership preferences, and their answers were then analyzed to determine their leadership style. Only 8 percent of the respondents turned out to be strategic leaders effective at leading transformations.

The study also showed that strategic leaders are more likely to be women, and that the percentage of strategic leaders increases with age — particularly age 45 and up.

The study clearly illustrated that an organization’s leaders must first understand their organization’s mission in order to be strategic. This means fully grasping why the company exists, who its customers are and how exactly it can provide value for them.

Another key is for strategic leaders to create a vision of what that mission will look like at a specified time in the future. That and crafting a strategy to put that vision into motion.
