According to Hoskisson et al (2004) Strategic Leadership is:
“…the managerial ability to anticipate, envision, maintain flexibility, and empower others to create
strategic change as necessary”.
Rowe (2001) emphasises the need at the top of organisations of what he labels “Strategic Leadership”. He describes Strategic Leadership as the …ability to influence others to voluntarily make day to day decisions that enhance the long-term viability of the organisation while maintaining its short term financial stability.
