  • LeadersStrategic Doing and Regional Leadership ... strategic doing requires a different kind of leader, someone who understands the importance of distributing responsibility and decision making widely. With strategic doing, leaders understand that a big part of the job involves helping others to learn. Leaders lead by helping others find and follow their passions. Effective leaders understand that creativity and innovation is not the product of a single mind but the blending of diverse perspectives. Leaders skilled in strategic doing understand when they must lead from the front and when to lead from the rear. They are comfortable doing both.
