Strategic mindset for senior leadership teams

"There's no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing", Sir Ralph Finnes

Successful strategic leaders force themselves to look beyond the present. They see ahead, see behind, see beyond and see it through. They realise that strategy is more than processing a plan and requires them to have a strategic mindset and approach. They see leadership as greater than the individual leader - interdependent, boundaryless, collective and connected. Without this, even the best and boldest plans wither on the vine, their potential never realised. Without strategies, vision is a dream.

"When facing strong winds, some build walls to protect themselves, others construct windmills." Chinese proverb
