Many managers express frustration about not being included in strategic planning activities. They want to do more than participate as ancillary tacticians. These managers don’t realize that the reason they’re not called in to strategize is because they don’t demonstrate their ability to do so on a daily basis. To change this, managers must adjust how they view their roles.
