Abstract or Summary

The research aim is to evaluate the importance of strategic leadership. The reason behind this aim is that it is very important to the selected organisation. The research followed a qualitative methodology. The manager of the restaurant was interviewed to gain primary data. The interview questions were related to the research scope, to find out information in areas such as: the difference between leadership and strategic leadership; the importance of strategic leadership in small business; how strategic leaders motivate their staff; and what strategic leaders do to achieve goals they set for their business. To conclude the research, strategic leadership is important for sustainable development and to embrace change effectively. Strategic leadership is all about collaboration and it focuses on future growth not just current opportunities. There are two main benefits of the strategic leadership, such as financial benefit and non-financial benefit. So, in order to inform the manager about strategic leadership, certain recommendation strategies have been identified in order to grow. Ultimately, the manager needs to understand motivational practices in order to motivate staff, with reward programmes and staff development, as well as taking practical steps while addressing the issues of organisational change.
