Much research has been done into answering the question: “what makes a good leader?”
It turns out that while a number of competencies are needed to successfully lead, the ability to think and plan strategically emerges as the attribute most highly correlated with leadership effectiveness.
The reason is that robust strategic thinking and planning is most likely to align people and resources around the things that will have the biggest organizational impact. This course teaches participants a methodology that culminates in a strategic plan, as well as how to use a structured framework for developing actionable plans. The material covered is brought alive by having participants work on their own case studies throughout.
