Business Strategy and Leadership are inextricably linked and Strategy is no longer a once-a-year process that creates a five-year plan to be placed in a three-ring binder and put on the shelf.  Business Strategy and Leadership are about planning, yes, but they are also about Execution.  “Planning without Execution is Hallucination”, said an IBM executive.

In this course, you gain valuable strategic insight regardless of industry, business maturity, or current business turbulence and how to apply these insights based on the factors impacting your own business. Topics covered include:

  • The key traits of successful Chief Strategists and what this role should and should not entail
  • The 10 "universal truths" of business strategy
  • How to take MBA lessons, great models, and exceptional concepts and put them into play in the real world
  • Strategy lessons we can learn from everyday sources…At the Movies, On the Farm, On Shark Tank, From Hell’s Kitchen and From the Bible.

Designed to be engaging but impactful, this course speaks directly to CFO’s, business executives, and those who aspire to C-level careers as it uses engaging parables to impart hard-earned wisdom pertaining to business strategy and leadership development.
