         Relevance to GGGS
Strategic Leaders =
     good managers + good leaders =
                    action and improvement
Strategic Leadership = continuous process
“It is not enough just to think, plan & reflect,
  people want to see things happen
  GGGS cannot rest on its product as in past -
   Too much competition today for our time”

A Strategic plan is only a plan for an MO
Actual strategy lies in the decisions &
choices an organisation makes as they
enact or fail to enact the plan

Strategic Leadership is the responsibility
of many people, not just those at the top;
a process of never ending individual, team
and organisation learning & cannot be
explained by a set of procedures

   Are you prepared to have a go?
         It will challenge you,
       but also be exciting to try
