VAE – Work of Leaders Model

“Work of Leaders” by Julie Straw and her co-authors presents a compelling model for leadership that emphasizes the critical stages of Vision, Alignment, and Execution. This framework distills leadership into these three essential components, arguing that effective leadership starts with establishing a clear vision. It then focuses on aligning the team or organization with this vision, ensuring that everyone is moving in the same direction and understands their role in achieving common goals. Finally, the model advocates for execution, where plans are transformed into actions, and the vision is realized through coordinated effort and persistent application. Straw’s book offers actionable insights and strategies, guiding leaders through each stage to foster leadership development that is both effective and sustainable, making it a valuable resource for anyone looking to enhance their leadership skills.
