ABSTRACT
this article presents information regarding the role of strategy in leadership. Strategy is not aspiration, action, deals, importance, vision, mission, learning, values, change, agility, growth, price, best practices, operations, acquisitions, or structure. Strategy is what makes one unique, gives one a distinct competitive advantage, provides direction, builds brand reputation, sets the right goals, add superior performance, defines a market position, and creates a unique value proposition. Barriers to strategy include capital markets with the prevailing emphasis on shareholder value, growth goals, development deals, wrong goals, wrong performance metrics, and cost accounting.
