Title: Leadership in Strategic Management


1
Leadership in Strategic Management
  • Preparatory thoughts and Ideas from Collins Good
    to Great

2
Leadership is complex
  • Many researchers have tried to identify traits of
    good leaders, but they found many exceptions to
    every rule
  • Only one principle seems to have survivedGood
    leaders are behaviorally complex
  • A good leader varies his/her behavior a lot
    depending on the situation

3
But authors like Hill Jones still list
characteristics of good leaders
  • and their list can be helpful
  • Vision, eloquence, and consistency
  • Commitment to their vision and business model
    demonstrated with words and actions
  • Being well-informed
  • Willingness to delegate and empower
  • Astute use of power
  • Dont memorize these. They wont be on the test
  • But a list like this provides a rough, common
    sense picture of what leaders have to do

4
  • One takeaway While strategic management texts
    deal mostly with self-interest-oriented thinking,
    good leaders use mammalian elements of brain

5
To think about leadership, look at some real
leaders
  • Ways of Good-to-Great leaders wont work
    everywhere, but they give a better sense of what
    great leaders can be than any list

6
The Good-to-Great Research
  • Studied 11 companies that had been ordinary
    performers, then at some point turned into
    superior performers
  • Produced returns 3x the stock market average for
    15 years
  • Kimberley-Clark (Huggies), Gillette, Nucor,
    Walgreens, Abbot Labs, Kroger, Wells Fargo, etc.
  • Compared them with similar companies that didnt
    transform

7
  • Companies that achieve the transformation Collins
    seeks are likely to have been ordinary performers
    inboring industries
  • William McKnight of 3M may have been a Level 5
    Leader
  • Most high-tech CEOs (e.g., Steve Jobs) are not
  • Collins, unfortunately, tries to tell everybody
    to follow the principles he found thats wrong

8
Level-5 leadership is how to lead a slow-moving
firm to major growth
  • Use the Good-to-Great findings as one picture of
    what a leader can be

9
Collins Level 5 Leader addresses long-term
problems
  • A paradoxical blend of
  • personal humility
  • intense professional will
  • Ambition for the company
  • But refuses to take credit for the success
  • Deep resolve to do what needs to be done
