LEADERSHIP IS A PROCESS OF SOCIAL INFLUENCE, WHICH MAXIMISES THE EFFORTS OF OTHERS TOWARDS THE ACHIEVEMENT OF A SHARED GOAL.

Trust means that every employee, starting at the top, knows the organisation's core values, its vision, and the plans for getting there. Trust means that roles and responsibilities are clear, and that the rules for dealing with conflicts are well understood. Trust means holding people accountable for what they do and don't do. In short, building trust through open communication is the quickest way to build bonds with employees, customers, and shareholders - and to accelerate your organisation's success.
A strategy begins and ends with values - a prioritised listing of what is important to you. This is Positive Leadership.
Once you know what you value as a leader, you can set goals to help you bring about end-results that are aligned with your values.
That is a strategy, and it is bigger than individual goals, and every bit as important. Without an overall strategy, you may climb the ladder of success. However, when you get to the top you may find that it is leaning against the wrong tree. You may find that the one with all of the fruit is just out of reach, if you haven't developed a good strategy to get there. Make sense?
