Your leadership team might consider exploring doing an assessment of the overall team strengths in order to open up a dialogue regarding how leaders who are more strategic in their thinking would compliment the team’s predominant executing work style. Helping your leadership team gain a greater understanding of their collective strengths, and where there might be gaps, can highlight the benefits of being more inclusive regarding having diversity on the team. There are assessments that can help your leadership team better understand their patterns of behavior and their primary work styles. This would open up an exploratory conversation around how the tendency to want to take action or jump first into execution could benefit from brainstorming with partners who tend to be more strategic and futuristic in their approach. I think your instincts around having more diversity on the team and complimentary work styles are right on the mark.
