Welcome to the Goal-based Leadership Site
Goal-based Leadership explores the strategic roles of a manager: how to act on trends and events; engage and communicate with key stakeholders; set your own goals and drive changes; analyze and report on performance and adjust your decisions and actions on this basis. Goal-based Leadership is an efficient management approach to deliver strategy.
Goal-based leadership is based on four management principles:
Create balance between the strategic and operational tasks
Most managers focus their skills, efforts and time on operational, business-as-usual, tasks; whilst these are important for the smooth-running of any business, modern organizations need their managers to do much more. They need their managers to handle their business-as-usual activities and, at the same time, drive the strategic activities that are such a fundamental part of survival in the rapid and ever-changing business environment. You can use your Management Team far more effectively if you learn to share and delegate strategic tasks and act through your goal drivers and relationship managers.
Challenge the traditional management approaches and models
Many management models and methods are not efficient to apply for managers working in a highly competitive environment of 21th century. Learn more about the shifts.
