The Strategic Plan is Dead. Long Live Strategy.

The Strategic Plan is Dead. Long Live Strategy. | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): The skills and mindset for today’s strategic planning will come from continuously asking ourselves these questions about our organizations, programs, and initiatives. Once we accept Dwight D. Eisenhower’s sage advice that “Plans are useless, but planning is everything,” we will be ready to adapt to whatever curveballs the twenty-first century sees fit to throw.

Thinking and planning in this type of growth oriented mind-set could set public education on an entirely different course of growth and innovation.

Maya Mathias's curator insight, February 2, 2013 3:01 PM

Plan, then experiment and be fluid to changing course.  Adaptive strategy is THE way to succeed in the 21st Century economy.  Thoughts?

Lose the assumptions...  Love it!

The New Year is a great opportunity to reset your leadership aspirations.  While we step back to think about taking our organizations to higher levels each year, rarely do we step back with the intention of stepping up our own leadership.

The Twelve Absolutes of Leadership

The Twelve Absolutes of Leadership | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Gary Burnison considers leadership to be a privilege. Most people like the idea of leadership but few count the cost. He says, “To lead is to be all in, transparent and accessible, calm in the face of upset and even crisis, and always mindful that you are a steward of something bigger than yourself.” That’s not easy. To whom much is given much is required. That’s the part that easily trips us up.

 

His book, The Twelve Absolutes of Leadership offers insight from his lifetime in leadership, interacting with some of the world's top leaders in the C-suite and boardrooms, as well as heads of state.

 

He offers a framework based on fundamental human truths and the essential elements of leadership. The “Absolutes” are building blocks that must be present regardless of your leadership style or approach.

 

Here are the 12 Absolutes with Burnison’s thoughts on each:...
