Organizations have strategies. Leaders have strategies. As a leader your strategy becomes known as your style and the path you choose to your legacy as a leader.
Among the values and mission of organizations, leaders also have individual values and missions. A leader’s mission statement is their compass – their purpose that defines who they are, what they stand for and what they will never compromise.
The ability to develop, and quickly and effectively assess where you are on these core beliefs as you manage through our careers is essential. More importantly, does your assessment correspond to what your people, your customers, investors and stakeholders believe to be your strategy?
