How Is Your Leadership Toolkit?
Great leaders typically have a robust leadership toolkit.  But, because leaders must lead within unique strategic contexts and organizational cultures, we believe there is not a simple or replicable formula for great leadership. 

Great Leaders Create Strategic Clarity
One of the first tools in a great leader's toolkit is the ability to rally the troops around a clear, compelling and implementable strategy.  Our organizational alignment research found strategic clarity accounts for 31% of the difference between high and low performing leaders.  The leadership toolkit contains three articles on the latest thinking regarding strategic clarity for leaders.

Great Leaders Build an Aligned and High Performance Culture
The second component in a great leader's toolkit is the ability to shape a workplace culture for their team that aligns with and enables strategy execution.  Because strategy must go through culture and people to be successful, great leaders ensure the culture accelerates their strategic priorities.  The leadership toolkit contains three articles on the latest thinking regarding clear, consistent and aligned culture.

Great Leaders Differentiate Talent
The third tool in a great leader's toolkit is the ability to attract, develop, engage and retain the right talent to thrive in their unique culture and carry out the strategy .  Great leaders know that different talent contributes differently and act accordingly.  The leadership toolkit contains three articles on the latest thinking regarding talent management best practices for leaders.

The Bottom Line
Great leaders:
  • Create strategic clarity by ensuring all key stakeholders clearly understand and commit to a direction that can be  consistently implemented throughout the organization. 
  • Build aligned and high performance cultures by ensuring their teams clearly understand what is expected and how that behavior drives success.
  • Differentiate top talent by ensuring they attract, develop, engage and retain people who will thrive in their unique environment.
If you would like to take your leadership thinking to the next level, this Leadership Toolkit for you.
