There is a disconnect in the workplace – between leadership and the actual people they are leading. Why? Too much time is being spent on contextual learning, case studies, etc. Instead, a better way of training leaders is suggested… to get those learning to lead to, well.. actually lead.
Learning opportunities that trigger emotional responses in the people learning from them, looking at the bigger picture, branching out and reaching for non-traditional methods of training and development are proving to be more successful than the text-book training style of learning so often used.
Taking the time to invest in good leadership is so important. Taking extra steps will prove to be well worth the extra time and resources invested.
- Too many business leaders today are out of touch with the employees they lead
- The vast majority of leadership programs are set curricula delivered through classroom-taught, rationally based, individual-focused methods
- The mismatch between leadership development as it exists and what leaders actually need is enormous and widening
