Smart Leadership: Achieving Strategy through Leadership & Innovation

Introduction

One of the age-old dilemmas encountered by leaders is not having enough time, the leadership capital, to get everything done. A major cause of this issue is the misallocation of leaders’ time in interacting with team members. To remain central to the team, while constantly pondering to be successfully innovative, leaders must leverage the genius of their team members. Smart Leadership is all about making the most of leaders’ work hours by learning to delegate, prioritise and simplify.
