Looking through a strategic lens

I love this phrase. It’s a great metaphor for being able to distance yourself just enough from a situation, an organization, or a problem, to focus on the bigger picture. Strong leaders are comfortable with this distance—with the ability to relay the details of the image, to engage, organize, and collaborate to create or restore the bigger picture to its healthiest state.

In today’s lean business environment, with employees and leaders fulfilling multiple roles, it’s natural to find yourself bogged down with day-to-day operations. But if it’s been a while since you looked through it, you may want to pick up your strategic lens and take a look.
