Strategic leadership is one of the most used and abused phrases in today's corporate lexicon. The Art and Discipline of Strategic Leadership removes the theory and guesswork to reveal strategic leadership for what it really is: guiding an organization to establish a framework within which it will make choices to determine its future nature and direction.

In The Art and Discipline of Strategic Leadership, international strategic advisers Mike Freedman and Benjamin Tregoe draw on their extensive experience with leading consulting firm Kepner-Tregoe. Along with examples of successfully implemented approaches from Hallmark International, British Airways, Lockheed Martin, the Bank of Ireland, and many others, they outline a five-phase plan you can use to:

  • Gather and analyze intelligence, craft a strategic vision, develop implementation plans, take action, and monitor results
  • Secure consistency in strategic decision-making throughout your organization
  • Dodge the currently popular--but potentially fatal--trend toward strategic short-termism
