It then describes the role itself and the broad functions of that role such as building and maintaining a team, achieving a common task, and motivating and developing the individual. It moves on to assess the skills you need to be effective, and the seven generic functions that make up the role of a strategic leader which include providing direction, strategic thinking and planning, building partnerships, and developing tomorrow's leaders.
