Todays strategic environment is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. It is changing more rapidly than ever before and the increased interdependence as a result of globalization, in addition to rapidly evolving threats, requires a special emphasis on specific strategic leader competencies in order to succeed in this environment. FM 22-100 identifies three strategic-leader skills interpersonal skills, conceptual skills, and technical skills. From these three primary strategic leadership skills, there is a list of twenty-one competencies that a strategic leader should posses. While all these skills and competencies play a role in successful strategic leadership, this paper will advocate that visioning, leading change, and interpersonal skills have the greatest impact on successful strategic leadership in this rapidly changing global environment.
