Leaders must be responsible for change. They are responsible for developing a vision of the future and the strategies that will enable the company to align with that vision. Leadership is about vision and strategy. The leader does not organize people, but aligns them, communicating development trajectories to managers who will have to create coalitions for change, motivating and inspiring people so that they can navigate during changes.” Andrea Lipparini.
