MASTERING STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP Overview Strategists make risky decisions today which impact tomorrow’s success. Leaders motivate and inspire others to embrace and pursue common goals. Strategic Leaders combine these two critical sets of skills and unite them in the relentless pursuit of value. In growth-focused organizations, strategic leaders are developed and nurtured at every level of the organization from team leader to CEO. This 3-day interactive program sets out a clear, effective methodology for creating value while sustaining growth. Participants will examine how to use their skills to make strategic decisions under pressure in risky environments, while creating growth at the right pace. By learning to implement a problem-finding mindset and to apply both analytic and interpersonal skills, you will accelerate your development as a strategic leader and make significant contributions to your organization’s success.
