A reinforcement of the idea that as a leader your actions (not your words) are being watched and evaluated.  In other words, what you do IS communication!  Developing a healthy sense of self awareness (don't read as changing who you are), and empathy for subordinates will result in the humility required to unleash your leadership potential at the highest levels.

While Strategic Visualisation, Formulation and Execution appear to be the key focus of most Organisations, Communication of the Strategy in a clear and effective manner is essential. The very people who are supposed to execute the strategy need to understand it. Failure of executives to communicate their strategies could result in a dichotomy of the strategy-full and the strategy-less. The message is clear to executives; involve your employees in your strategy and communicate it or watch as those visions rapidy turn into nightmares.

Avoid These Strategy-Making Pitfalls

 When creating strategy, far too many leaders give in to temptations that result in weak strategic choices, and ultimately, failure. Here are three common mistakes and how to avoid them: 
Failing to choose. Attempting to be all things to all customers isn’t a winning strategy. Select specific segments of consumers with particular characteristics that you can serve best.Acquiring to change playing fields. Acquisition usually just adds unnecessary complexity. If you can’t strategize in your current environment, you won’t necessarily excel in a different one.Accepting an existing choice as unchangeable. A company always has a choice of where in the market they will play, so don’t use this as an excuse for mediocre performance. Change won’t happen overnight, but you can alter the course with focus and dedication.

Peter Azzopardi's curator insight, March 16, 2013 7:54 AM

Very informative infographic. Quickly, for those who are wondering "Enterprise information management combines business intelligence (BI) and enterprise content management (ECM). Enterprise information management takes these two approaches to managing information one step further, in that it approaches information management from an enterprise perspective. Where BI and ECM respectively manage structured and unstructured information, EIM does not make this "technical" distinction." courtesy Wikipedia

Don Dea's curator insight, September 25, 2013 12:15 AM

Companies are moving information-related functions to the cloud, in ways that supplement or replace systems inside the firewall. There is also the proliferation of data and content – more information – created in many cloud-based sites not under the control of the enterprise. But companies want and need all of this information -- and also need energetic ways to govern it all.

The strategic yardstick you can’t afford to ignore | McKinsey & Company | Strategy Planning | Scoop.it

A systematic scan of the economic-profit performance of nearly 3,000 global companies yields fresh insight about where and how to compete.

That effort enabled us to test some deeply held truths and distill generalizable lessons about what it takes to win consistently.

For example, we saw that the corporate world, like the world beyond it, has a relatively small number of elites and that, just as society grapples with the contemporary challenge of limited social mobility, many companies seem stuck in their strategic “class..A McKinsey Quarterly article
