Football strategy

Share the big picture with today’s leadership tip!

You might be surprised to learn that many people do not fully understand how their work contributes to strategic development and company goals. Make clear to your employees how important their work is and why it’s important. This will provide context for their work, keep them engaged, and bring new meaning to their work responsibilities.

Leadership Quote of the Day:

“What business strategy is all about-what distinguishes it from all other kinds of business planning-is, in a word, competitive advantage. Without competitors there would be no need for strategy, for the sole purpose of strategic planning is to enable the company to gain, as efficiently as possible, a sustainable edge over its competitors.” – Kenichi Ohmae

Leadership Book of the Day:

Business Model Generation: A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers Paperback – by Alexander Osterwalder

From the Book: Co-created by 470 “Business Model Canvas” practitioners from 45 countries, the book features a beautiful, highly visual, 4-color design that takes powerful strategic ideas and tools, and makes them easy to implement in your organization. It explains the most common Business Model patterns, based on concepts from leading business thinkers, and helps you reinterpret them for your own context. You will learn how to systematically understand, design, and implement a game-changing business model–or analyze and renovate an old one. Along the way, you’ll understand at a much deeper level your customers, distribution channels, partners, revenue streams, costs, and your core value proposition.
