This book trains you on how to be a strategist—always and in all ways.

Ever wonder why you’ve had more strategy conversations than you can count, but not a single strategist discussion you can remember? That’s because strategy has made a career out of ignoring the strategist—until now. Strategists First will help you learn what every strategist needs to know, including: who strategists are, what strategists believe, how strategists behave, where strategists thrive, when strategists strike, and why strategists matter. If you’re an accomplished strategist, this book gives voice and visibility to your fight against the status quo. If you’re an aspiring strategist, this book delivers the beliefs and practices needed to live this identity into action.
