- What makes the difference between a good enough leader and a really great one? Their strategy. A lot of people can bumble and fumble their way through leadership, but an excellent leader is one that prioritizes leading strategically. When you aren't careful in your approach to leadership, you risk making poor decisions, jeopardizing relationships, and failing to meet your goals. Being a strategic leader gives you a shot at avoiding these common pitfalls and instead sets you and your team on a course for success. I'm Eric Zackrison, I'm a professor, a consultant, and I've managed and owned businesses for nearly 30 years. And I can tell you, strategic leadership has been at the heart of my success. In this course, I want to give you the methodology for what a strategic leader looks like. You'll learn how to identify the core needs of your organization at all levels. I'll teach you how to make decisions in tough situations and how to persuade stakeholders to follow your lead and accept your decisions as the right ones. I'll provide a roadmap for how to implement organizational change and how to make sure your improvements stick around. I'll offer insights from my own experiences, findings from academic researchers, and even a little wisdom from an ancient philosopher too. So if you're ready to hone your skills for being a strategic leader, then let's dive in.
