ABSTRACT
This article presents comments of several management leaders on leadership. Management leader Michael Porter said that strategy is not aspiration, action, deals, importance, vision, mission, learning, values, change, agility, growth, price, best practices, operations, acquisitions, or structure. Strategy is what gives people a distinct competitive advantage, direction, brand reputation, the right goals, superior performance, market position, and a unique value proposition. Another management leader Larry Bossidy said that as a leader, people are paid to confront reality and deal with it. Many leaders suffer from selective hearing. The best leaders focus on execution. They integrate business systems. They get more people involved in identifying and implementing the vision. And if they miss targets, they find out why and self-correct. They conduct candid appraisals. They work as a team to achieve desired outcomes.
