For this episode, let's revisit one of Strategy Skills classics where we spoke about the approach and philosophy used by the study leadership team in a power sector corporate strategy study as they guide and mentor corporate leaders at the client.

We discuss the four pillars on which our leadership philosophy is built and use practical examples to demonstrate how we help clients adopt these principles.

The four pillars are:

  1. Sincere authenticity matters.
  2. Embrace – don’t hide – leadership flaws.
  3. Forget about image.
  4. Focus on results.

This approach is about helping corporate leaders be successful in the short term. If you would like to learn more about this leadership work, please read this article.
