Are you looking for some leadership inspiration? There are endless styles of leadership, and countless more ways to resolve specific issues in the workplace. Here, we take a look at what top level leaders have done to lift their companies up.
Let’s look to Lisa Su, the CEO of Advanced Micro Devices. When Su first came into this leadership role, the company was facing bankruptcy. In navigating this difficult situation, Su decided to carve a new path forward for AMD: focusing on producing high performance computer applications. Leaders need to look for ways forward that take into account leadership, employees, and their business. Su did just that, allowing AMD to find success in the tech industry.
Leaders need to constantly look to the future, not simply continue what has been done in the past. Lynn Good, CEO of Duke Energy, is a great example of future thinking. Under her leadership, the company developed a ten year strategy to build a smarter energy grind and generate overall cleaner energy. Because of this, Good is helping Duke Energy have a long lasting impact in the industry.
When in doubt, take the time to understand where your company currently stands. Then, look to the future, and where you want your company to go. This is a great way to begin building your long term strategy, allowing your company to flourish.
