Strategic leadership and management have been widely studied through the lenses of economics, business models, theories of work, and the like. This chapter offers a unique view of strategic leadership and management through the examination of two collections of imperatives: “Leadership Under Fire” written by a retired U.S. Army Major and “Live With Intention” written by a businesswoman and author whose published work has been read by millions. We make the case that effective leadership and management is a function of the relationship with one's self, one's work as well as with a myriad of stakeholders. The unique lens of this chapter provides a means to consider “outside the box” approaches to fueling bottom-line results, sustainability, and global impact through strategic leadership and management.
