Unlocking Success: Strategic Planning for Transformational Leaders

Strategic Planning as a Transformational Leader

Have you created a Strategic Plan only to have the implementation languish in obscurity instead of producing results?  Developing the Strategic Plan is only one part of the process. Transformational Leaders create a dynamic environment where team members embrace the strategy and excel at executing it.

It all starts with a Vision

For a Strategy to be effective, it needs to support the company’s vision.  Being without a vision is like driving your car with no view out the front windshield. You have no idea where you’re going and if you do arrive in a favorable place, it will be sheer luck rather than good management.

Transformational Leaders have a clear vision of the future and can articulate it to their teams in an inspiring manner. For a vision to be effective, it must address the concerns of the relative parties.  Your employees want to understand how their efforts will contribute to the company’s strategy.  Doing this is inspiring for them.

Start from the future

An effective Strategy is crafted from the future, where Transformational Leaders want the company to be.  Pick a date in the future and stand there, on that date, and imagine what has been created.  These will be the outcomes the company is striving for.  From there the team can look back and see what steps would have been taken to arrive at the goal or outcomes achieved.

Once you know where you are going, then you can look at the map to plan for rest stops and perhaps a few fun excursions along the way. You know when you need to leave, what is it going to take to get there, and milestones to ensure you are making appropriate progress.  In the same way, establishing a Strategy from the future allows Leaders to see the path forward.

Develop more Leaders

Transformational Leaders empower their teams by delegating authority and responsibility to develop more Leaders in the company.  They encourage their team members to make decisions and take ownership of their work, which fosters a sense of autonomy and accountability.  This ownership is key to the successful execution of a Strategy.
