Even a strong leader can flounder without an effective strategy, and the most powerful strategy can fail without the right leader. Only those who master and integrate both skills can effectively navigate the challenges that lay ahead for today’s organizations. Drawing from his new book, The Strategic Leader's Roadmap (Wharton Digital Press), co-authored with Harbir Singh, Michael Useem offers a six-point roadmap for leading strategically that will help you strengthen your capacity to develop strategy and lead its execution.
“In today’s world of rapid change, success requires firms to have both leadership and strategy. The Strategic Leader’s Roadmap provides a pragmatic and actionable guide to developing leaders that embody both. Balancing exemplary corporate experience with academic concepts, the book offers a six-point roadmap for integrating leadership and strategy.” —Vikram Malhotra, Chairman of the Americas, McKinsey & Company
