The Need for Strategy at all Levels of the Business

strategy skillsMore than ever before, organizations need strong, capable, strategic leaders who can motivate, coach, and inspire people to do strategic work that will help ensure the organization’s success over the long term.

Contributors at all levels in the organization look to their leaders for direction and clues as to how the future will unfold and how they can add distinctive value to the organization’s success.

In order to survive and thrive, organizations have to navigate strategic shifts and develop new sources of competitive advantage for the firm.

Therefore, leaders have to increase their effectiveness by focusing on the strategic work that must be done to adapt to competitive pressures and uncover hidden opportunities.

For any organization to be strategically positioned, each function, department, and person must figure out how to align with, and support, the organization’s overarching strategy. It is critical that every leader create and execute their own unique, stand-alone strategy for their team that is parallel with the business.

The strategies within the business will require ongoing review and discussion about emerging transitions, transformations, and all-out reinventions in the services, operations, processes, and mind-sets of people in order to harvest strategic opportunities or navigate around the hazards that lay ahead.

CMOE has a variety of programs, services, and tools to help managers and their employees maximize strategic thinking and reach their strategic initiatives.

“Everyone in the organization has to be a contributor (not just a performer). This means you have to be better at what you do than the person doing your same work in competitor organizations”.

~ Steve J. Stowell, Ph.D.

“Burnout happens, not because we’re trying to solve problems, but because we’re trying to solve the same problem over and over.”

~ Susan Scott

“Try some occasional bold moves, surprise yourself, and be an active force in the creation of the future that you want to see unfold.”
