Feature Presentation and Workshop – “Leadership, Strategy, and Vision – Are They the Same Thing?”


Leadership, strategy, and vision are terms often used in the same discussion. Further, they are sometimes combined to create new phrases, such as visionary leadership or strategic vision. What are these terms, and how do they apply to my professional and personal lives? Are they redundant, or are they different concepts that can be combined to essentially create something like the Triple Constraint? This workshop will briefly explore the foundations for each of these and their current application. Participants will be encouraged to share experiences and specific suggestions that can be pursued after the workshop.
