Leading Strategy Execution demonstrates to senior executives ways they can inspire their employees to execute essential company strategies. Having a good strategy isn’t enough to guarantee a company’s success; executives and managers need to ensure that their strategies are implemented correctly throughout the company and that all staff are on board.
The book is divided into three sections:
1. Energy of Engagement: This section demonstrates how to engage and energize employees so that they want to implement company strategy, and so that they accept their role and contribution towards making the strategy a success.
2. Energy of Change: This section illustrates ways in which executives can persuade employees to alter their habits, which may have been reinforced over a number of years by business processes and systems. Managers will learn how to give staff the exact skills and confidence needed to apply the new ways of thinking that are required to turn today’s new strategy into tomorrow’s business culture.
3. Energy of Management: This section reveals to executives how to energize and employ the middle managers within the business. It explains how to ensure that middle managers focus company strategy and become ambassadors of change rather than inertia.
