The chief strategist of an organization has to be the leader. A lot of business thinking has stressed the notion of empowerment, of pushing down and getting a lot of people involved. That's very important, but empowerment and involvement don't apply to the ultimate act of choice To be successful, an organization must have a very strong leader who's willing to make choices and define the trade-offs.

Follow The Leader The critical job for a leader is to provide the discipline and the glue that sustains the key goals and strategy over time Another way to look at it is that the leader has to be the guardian of trade-offs. In any organization, ideas pour in every day – from employees with suggestions, from customers asking for things, from suppliers trying to sell things There's all this input, and a good share of it is INCONSISTENT with the organization's goals and strategy

Follow The Leader Great leaders are able to enforce the trade-offs. At the same time, great leaders understand that there's nothing rigid or passive about goals and strategy -- it's something that a company is continually getting better at -- so they can create a sense of urgency and progress while adhering to a clear and very sustained direction A leader also has to be vigilant by making sure that EVERYONE understands the company's goals and strategy

A leader also has to be vigilant by making sure that EVERYONE understands the company's goals and strategy

Follow The Leader The most fundamental purpose of strategy is to inform each team member of the many thousands of things that get done in an organization every day, and to make sure that those things are all aligned in the same basic direction If people in the organization don't understand the company's focus, how the company is supposed to be different, how it creates value compared to its rivals, then how can they possibly make all of the myriad choices they have to make in order to be achieving goals?

Every salesman has to know the strategy -- otherwise, he won't know whom to call on. Every engineer has to understand it, or she won't know what to build. Every person is important, therefore everyone and everything counts! Follow The Leader

Follow The Leader The best leaders are teachers, and at the core of what they teach is goal setting, strategy, and implementation. They go out to employees, to suppliers, and to customers, and they repeat, "THIS IS WHAT WE STAND FOR!" So everyone understands it. This is what leaders do. In great companies, strategy becomes a cause. That's because a strategy is about being different. So if you have a really great strategy, people are fired up: "We're not just another run of the mill company. We're bringing something new to the world and this is it!“ People follow the leader and YOU are the leader!
