Why So Many Leadership Programs Ultimately Fail

Why So Many Leadership Programs Ultimately Fail | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

In other words, the critical challenge of leadership is, mostly, the challenge of emotional courage.

 

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

Provocative post here by Peter Bregman on the need to apply the leadership lessons back to the workplace, specifically the emotional courage needed to give work through uncomfortable situations, provide direct feedback and be vulnerable. 

 

From the post:

 

The only way to teach courage is to require it of people. To offer them opportunities to draw from the courage they already have. To give them opportunities to step into real situations they find uncomfortable and truly take the time to connect with the sensations that come with that.

 

For example, most leadership programs give people feedback from anonymously collected forms they and their colleagues fill out before the program. That's safe.

 

In the leadership week I conduct for senior leaders, I have people give each other real feedback, in real time, face-to-face with each other, based on what they're witnessing in the program.

 

That's courageous.

 

And the more they take those kinds of risks during the week — risks to be vulnerable, to communicate hard things, to listen to hard things, to try a new behavior — the more they will take those same risks in real life, when it matters most.
