To Achieve A Goal, One Must Have A Strategy

"Leaders establish the vision for the future and set the strategy for getting there; they cause change. They motivate and inspire others to go in the right direction and they, along with everyone else, sacrifice to get there." ~ John P. Kotter

"Strategy is a commodity, execution is an art." ~ Peter Drucker

"The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do." ~ Michael Porter

We all try to attain short-term and long-term goals of all sorts. 

Informally and formally, planning and making decisions to achieve such goals is the basis of a strategy. 

Sometimes, individuals must comprehend the situation before setting short-term and long-term goals, devising a plan, and taking action.

When strategizing, some individuals consider their options and encourage others to support their goals. Sometimes, these individuals will use this strategy to take action without others fully understanding the short-term and long-term consequences that may result in chaos.

A good strategy, or an ethical strategy, shows clarity, focus and transparency. 

When all stakeholders are not just aware of, but actively involved in understanding the bigger picture, their contributions can trigger a positive domino effect in decisions and actions, enhancing the ethical nature of the strategy.

Efficacy, efficiency, and effectiveness are essential for an ethical strategy to be effective for all stakeholders.

An exceptional ethical strategy, where all stakeholders are part of the decision-making process, fosters a consensus that boosts adaptability. This adaptability ensures the strategy can effectively accommodate changes and circumstances, thereby reducing stress and chaos within an organization or business.
