We HR professionals typically assume that leadership development means focusing on the top tiers of the organization chart, evaluating individuals capababilites, personality styles, etc. of each leader and providing programming that helps those leaders develop targeted areas for improvement. In the fifteen years that I implemented these models I never had one invidual who requested 360 degree feedback, said thank you for the feedback, or demonstrated significant impact to organization performance.
I realized one day that perhaps there could be a better model of leadership and leadership development. Rather than focusing on the one leader at a time, I realized the value of teaching everyone how to address the organization’s most complex issues. What if leadership wasn’t about individual capabilities, but the ability of many people to address complex issues…together? What if leadership wasn’t about charisma or mysterious skills or competencies…but a repeatable measurable process? What if we could provide people the tools to make the leadership work fun and easy?
This program summarizes five years of research and writing and provides a unique paradigm of leadership develop. I discovered it was possible to train many people at one time. That the walls between silos were lowered when people shared a common language and process. I was able to demonstrate almost immediate results. Even more interesting, people who heard about the training asked to participate. Why?
The Toolbox approach presented here is quite practical and provides people a way to develop new possibilities. A sense of community develops because people understand how to do the complex adaptive work together. They become unstuck.
I look forward to meeting you and your participation in the session.
