Leadership lessons: Stop fire fighting, start leading
Moving humming bird-like from issue to issue is no way to run a business; an effective leader needs an overall vision, argues Andrew C. Marshall.
Today’s complex organisations require leaders who embrace vision over motion, change management over meaningless action and issue resolution over fire fighting. Success is not tied to the latest technology or business model. It is the way our leaders see the organisation's future, create a path to realise it, and resolve the issues that impede the way.
