Leaders plan the strategy for change.

Always Have a Strategy for Problem Solving

In Leadership by Jason Cortel

Many leaders fail to plan the strategy for change and instead focus on dissecting the problem. Solutions without strategy are nothing more than band-aids that will soon lose their stickiness. Therefore it is important for leaders to implement a solid strategy for change.

Leaders who are effective and comfortable solving problems and bringing change typically know how to build the right team, acquire the right resources, find funding and use knowledge from their past. Seeing the act of solving problems more as a way to bring people closer, they understand that to do this it is important to inspire the team to step-up their effort and foster a highly collaborative approach. When our backs are against the wall and the flames of the fire are nearly on top of us, our true character shows.

Having a realistic plan for how the problem will be approached and managed, will help leaders be more effective in developing the map the helps the team get to the end point. When a leader is able to do develop and articulate a solid foundation they will be able to better anticipate the unexpected and maximize the strengths of the people brought in to solve the problem and implement the change. As a result of this foundation and plan the solution that the team executes will be more sustainable.
