With the rapid trend away from management to business leadership, there is a need for a new, broader understanding of leadership.
This clear and authoritative guide answers the questions, 'what is strategic leadership?', 'what makes a person effective as a strategic leader?' and 'how can I develop my abilities as a leader?' The concept of leadership is relevant not only to organisational life but to all of us: everyone has to 'lead' their own life. To be a strategic life-leader means developing a vision and direction for one's life, identifying personal core values and fostering an informal team among colleagues and associates.
'Effective Strategic Leadership' is as important for unstructured careers as it is in large companies or organisations.
