See on Scoop.it – What I’m thinking about
Over the years, I’ve observed just about every type of leadership development program on the planet. And the sad thing is, most of them don’t even come close to accomplishing what they were designed to do – build better leaders.
Key thought: "don’t train your leaders, coach them." I disagree that all training is bad , some tools can effectively (and most cost efficiently) be delivered in a classroom setting. After the classroom it is critical to help people practice, get feedback and continue their learning. Don’t misunderstand, I’m all for developing through coaching. I AM an executive coach. I just don’t believe it is black and white. I believe if it were, we’d all be further along in developing our current and future leaders.
