Why Leadership is so crucial ?
Survival of the Fittest
To survive in today’s highly competitive market, companies must continuously adapt ,invest and innovate. The moment a company stops investing in its products ,its processes and its people, development slows and growth comes to an end.
As Jack Welch said: “If the speed of change outside is faster than inside the organization, the end is just a matter of time.”
But, to invest wisely, organizations must have a clear vision and sound strategy.
Strategy Management System
To enjoy the “Execution Premium”, Managers must take the strategy out of the boardroom, and turn it into actions. This requires a clear “Strategy Management System” like Balanced Score Card, as result, the level of focus and business alignment becomes so high to the point that it creates a true competitive advantage for the organization.
Since it is impossible to implement a strategy without the full involvement of all employees, especially those who are face to face with customers, managers must have strong leadership skills in order to:
- Communicate and convince people.
- Make wise and timely decisions.
- Solve problems and find solutions.
- Motivate and energize their teams.
- Delegate and supervise their subordinates.
- Negotiate professionally.
- Manage stress and mitigate risks.
- Respond to people’s resistance to change in an empathetic, non-threatening and persuasive manner.
