Do you spend most of your time on strategic issues or tactical tasks?
The common thought on leadership is that the higher you go in an organization the more you should focus on strategic things and the less you should spend on tactical tasks. That makes sense. And yet, is it the whole picture?
Wherever you stand as a leader, your team members look to you for help and support in both the mission AND in their individual goals. So yes, focus on the strategic aspects of communicating your mission. Remember also that your people may need help on their goals - and you are likely the best source of that help.
The art of leadership is keeping a team focused on its mission while also helping each member with individual goals.
Are you ready for that? Are you doing that?
