In an article entitled: ”Do You Have the Fortitude to Be Strategic?”, it is suggested that 99% of executives are actually tactical executives.
“Yet according to Chet Holmes, arguably one of, if not the, best sales and marketing strategists, 99% of executives are actually tactical executives. He suggests that it’s the very rare person that both comes up with the big ideas and implements with piercing effectiveness. Yet the ability to do both is precisely the skill set required to be the best at what you do. To be clear, it takes fortitude to be strategic.”
By the way, I don’t personally know Chet Holmes and while I don’t know where the 99% comment comes from, I can tell you that it is entirely possible to find out just how strategic you are or are not.
In my surveys where I asked people what traits or qualities they expect to see in the people they are willing to follow, they told me they want the leaders they follow to be strategic and they also brought up the idea that leaders should be visionary as well.
It is entirely possible to find out if you are visionary while you’re also finding out just how strategic you are if you want to know if you have these particular traits required in leadership.
