Are you a frustrated visionary? Can you see where your company needs to go but you can’t quite seem to lead your team there? Are you tired of meeting with resistance from employees and co-workers? If any of these statements describe you then you must improve your tactical leadership skills.
Most leadership experts talk about how to create a vision for tomorrow but not about what actions to take today to achieve that vision. Tactical Leadership techniques are the daily actions necessary to inspire your team to realize your vision. There are five critical elements to effective tactical leadership, creating your cadre of key employees, communicating your vision, inspiring your team to excel, holding team members accountable and delegating responsibility.
