Leadership Focus

A practical perspective to organization leadership and communication

spacer spacer


Leadership demands living by the enduring principles that produce success, and augmenting them with new qualities that enable speed, flexibility, risk-taking, an obsession with goals, and new levels of communication within an organization.

Although all managers perform the traditional management functions of planning, organizing, staffing, controlling, and directing, it seems that the higher the management level within an organization the more important it is for the manager to exhibit great leadership qualities.  At executive management levels the manager’s duties are concerned less with the minutia of running the organization and more on setting strategic goals and maintaining corporate direction while listening carefully to their subordinates and responding thoughtfully .

Present management and leadership issues involve competitive strategy, leadership, creativity, teamwork and technology.   The leadership paradigm, however, is shifting and managers must adapt to new issues created by a global economy and changing demographics.
