Strategic conversion is one of the best ways of good leadership. Leaders provide a platform for employees and management to come together and brainstorm ideas about innovations and improvement of the company. The management comes up with specific ideas facing the organization and gives the employees a chance to present various solutions either as individual work or in groups. To make sure that good ideas are not passed by, the organization creates forums. The organizations management role is to empower the employees by giving the mentorship and resources. Employees may not understand what corporate strategy is. Therefore, it is management’s job to enlighten them. Proper communication should be a priority if the management wishes the employees to come up with good, viable and implementable ideas. Some of the best ways to come up with innovative ideas include; setting up events where employees come up with new ideas, groups or individuals compete over where prizes are won, setting up challenges to specific problems, employees being involved in reviewing the organization’s annual plan and lastly getting ideas from clients.
