STRATEGIC LEADERS LINCOLN AND SOCRATES 2
Strategic Leadership
What is strategic leadership? The basic skills are well defined: the abilities to anticipate,
challenge, interpret, decide, align, and learn. (Schoemaker, Krupp & Howland, 2013). There are
many strategic leaders with these skills, but seldom do they create a unique and special

virtue of high-mindedness.” (Bragues, 2007). The Socratic method fuses both the science and the
art of management. It is a cooperative (collaborative) method used to stimulate the participants to
ask and answer questions through critical thinking. A dialogue between teachers and students
(strategic leaders and employees, mangers), not teaching, but a collaboration that requires those
involved to think beyond the normal responses and enter different realms of possibilities
