This module is designed for managers and junior executives seeking to transition to an organizational leader at the director, chief, vice president, or president levels.
Organizational leadership, more commonly called strategic leadership, is a rare resource. We define organizational leadership as the ability to think, act, and influence others in ways that ensure the enduring success of an organization. Studies suggest that fewer than 10% of leaders possess these essential skills. Company leaders often pressure their subordinate managers to show short-term results, so operational leadership replaces strategic leadership in such situations. Consequently, leaders feel paralyzed when complex problems arise—and these problems often have long-term implications.
This module examines the current thinking on organizational leadership. Leadership errors lie at the heart of failure. Strategic leadership causes success as much as it helps us avoid disasters.
1. Understand the concept of organizational leadership.
2. Apply the skills of an organizational leader.
3. Differentiate between the approaches to organizational strategy.
4. Appreciate why organizational leadership is critical to business success.
5. Know how to train and develop other leaders.
6. Apply the concepts in the workplace to become a better organizational leader.
