3 Keys to Successful Leadership:  Vision, Alignment, Execution

Three quotes describe the challenges of all leaders perfectly: 1. “If you don’t know where you are going then any road will take you there” – Alice in Wonderland 2. “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”  -African Proverb 3. “However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.”   —Sir Winston Churchill.   It is challenging to cover all aspects of leadership…our personality styles often lead us to be stronger in one area and lacking in another.  Through self analysis of a number of well researched continua, anyone in a leadership role or a team of leaders can get clarity on best practices.   Regardless of how strong a leader feels they are, they can get a real “Aha moment” when reviewing the gaps they have in any of the continua. If we can better understand what to pay attention to in the areas of Vision, Alignment and Execution we can be better leaders with stronger teams.
