Strategic vision is one of the most crucial competencies for effective leaders to possess. Interestingly, it is one of the most often quoted weaknesses. 

Some of the most common comments we hear about a person’s area of weakness are, “This person is not strategic. This person is not perceived as looking at the longer term, the broader view of the organization’s vision and mission. They are stuck in the same way of getting things done. They are not skillful in helping others to understand the vision so that it can be translated into challenging and meaningful goals. They are not able to connect the big picture to tactics and short-term goals.” This is a problem. 

Please join us for this presentation where Dr. Jack Zenger and Dr. Joe Folkman will answer the questions:
  • How many leaders with strategic vision does an organization need?
  • How do you go about developing that vision?
  • What does strategic vision do for the firm and the individual?
  • What does an individual need in order to truly execute well for their organization?
  • What is required to coach leaders on strategic direction and vision?
