To focus on the big picture & focus on the long-term is usually the first step to succeed, whether to develop Level five leadership or become an exceptional CEO.
Most people understand technical part– being on the right track and industry insights, but miss another one– a healthy Ego. Unless they can naturally focus on the big picture, many things can go wrong in the first step. For example, leaders may be able to tell an ass kisser from a praiser but choose the ass kisser to satisfy their Ego and get backfired. Some people want to stay in Day One but dig a grave for self as they think they can steal, rob and silence their competitors.
To focus on the big picture also includes to focus on the long term, which can be challenging when disruptions and changes can come from any direction. It can be the most challenging to focus on the big picture and focus on the long-term in the storm unless the leader is well-prepared.
