Leaders are responsible for shaping the future. Strategy is the work of a leader. Leaders have to set the strategy. Strategy answers a simple question. Where are we going? What sets us apart in the marketplace? Who are we? How are we different?
One of my favorite quotes from the book: “Take care of yourself. Leaders who are under incredible scrutiny and pressure have to find new ways to renew themselves. Self-care means building resilience by increasing your capacity to respond to adversity and sustaining your energy in the face of inevitable difficulty. As a leader, you need to take care of yourself on many dimensions.”
