Average Leadership = vision + strategy + people
Great Leadership = vision + strategy + people + process + execution
Many leaders have great vision: they see where they want to take their companies in the coming years, and map out their strategies accordingly.
But, what’s often missing is skill and confidence in execution.
Many people say that execution is not part of a leader’s role. I couldn’t disagree more. Execution needs to be part of the corporate culture as it’s everyone’s role.
To translate concept into reality, leaders need to be skilled and confident in their ability to get things done with their team. Vision and strategy never stand alone: they rely on an organization’s ability to achieve them. That’s where the real magic happens.
When leaders understand this and commit to it, vision comes to life in the form of people, process and teamwork. I’ve seen it in action, and it can take leaders, employees and their companies from average to great.
