Architectural Leadership is a new approach to leadership intended to assist CEOs in overcoming obstacles, implementing strategy, achieving performance improvement and enhancing value. The Architect Leader structures value-drivers through unique core organizational Methods, which embody improved capabilities, serve strategy and widen the strategic horizon. The Architect Leader assimilates the Methods in the organization and ensures application of lessons learned and adjustment of the Methods to the varying circumstances. Architect Leaders nurture leadership at all organizational levels, encourage initiatives and harness all employees, not just the executive team, to fulfill the organization's goals. The Architectural Leadership approach is practical, accessible and does not require charisma. It is based on extensive experience and has successfully been applied in many business and governmental organizations and in various industries as a means of creating competitive advantage and increasing value.
