What Does the Organization Need Me to Do?

Summary: A successful leader does what is best for the organization by putting employees in positions where they can succeed and benefit themselves and the team. While this rule seems straightforward, putting it into practice can be difficult when a leader faces two equally attractive scenarios. The question then is what does the organization need me to do? The question aligns the leadership proposition with the action steps needed to deal with the situation, and in the process creates a focus on vision, mission, and values. Strategic thinking is a way to help your team add value to the enterprise. This article is excerpted from the AMA Handbook of Leadership. Another article by this author is available online.
