“We can all become strategic leaders if we stay on the right path.”
—Harbir Singh & Michael Useem
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.
The Strategic Leader’s Roadmap, by Wharton management professors Harbir Singh and Michael Useem, offers a 6-point checklist for leading strategically that will help managers strengthen their capacity to develop strategy and to lead its execution.
Drawing on one-on-one interviews with CEOs, in-depth research, and their experience teaching today’s executives and tomorrow’s leaders, Singh and Useem take readers into the offices—and mindsets—of some of today’s foremost strategic leaders, including:
Carlos Ghosn, chief executive officer of Nissan
Indra Nooyi, chief executive of PepsiCo
Jack Ma, founder and chief executive of Alibaba Group
John Chambers, executive chairman of Cisco Systems
Fast-moving and inspiring, The Strategic Leader’s Roadmap will enable leaders at all levels to master today’s most vital capability.
