Effective strategic leadership is the root cause of either success or failure in any corporation. Wherever effective leadership development is established and nurtured, the company succeeds with continual growth, greater customer satisfaction, and employee retention.
A corporate culture is determined by the abundance, or lack of organizational leadership. It provides strategic direction, policies and procedures for the organization. This corporate culture is comprised of the intangible norms, behaviors and “expectations” that are unique to any particular company.
Organizational leaders creates these norms by policy, example and tradition. Purposely or unconsciously they enforce the to maintain the culture. It also creates a common vision statement that is intended to motivate members around a common goal. The quality of leadership and management determines the level of organizational development.
