Reconsidering Strategic Thinking

  1. Continuing education for leaders is the difference between rote action and thoughtful strategy, and rote action isn’t what our communities need from us today. Whatever might be our habits now are, I can guarantee, outdated. It takes a while for habits to become rote, and change is happening at breakneck speed; do the math.
  2. There’s nothing unfaithful about strategic leadership. If we are to be good stewards of the resources we control, and the power that’s been delegated to us, we ought not squander our energies on that which doesn’t work.
