Definition of Strategic Leadership

My colleagues and I spent a long time trying to define Strategic Leadership. We concluded that the definition is:

Strategic leadership engages people in creative thinking, planning and execution to most effectively accomplish the vision.

This can be broken down as:

  • Strategic leadership
  • engages people in (used by all staff in the organization)
  • creative (not just more of the same)
  •   thinking, (ideas)
  •   planning and (preparation)
  •   execution (doing and checking)
  • to most effectively (best of considered alternatives)
  • accomplish the vision. (the goal is the macro result)
