The leadership scholar explains why measurable, experience-based programs are key to helping executives develop their potential.
Terry Finerty's insight:
Good article on the importance of using experience-based learning for effective leadership development. In addition, would add emphasis to the value of a 'plan-do-review' group with peers - creating a support network that shares insights and learnings from projects, as well as holding one another accountable to their development commitments for each project.
An interesting perspective from Simon Sinek. Totally agree with the view on the "bottom 25%" etc. And agree as well with the service perspective - seeing service as self interest.
I also am attracted to the type of organisation I imagine would follow. However, there may be limits to how far this is a robust approach rather than a perspective of value in certain circumstances or frames.
One, I'm not 100% sure we know how society originally evolved and if the assumptions and rules are really down to evolution and biology. Secondly, I can see how taking the right decisions may be part of "extending the circle" but at times the organisation can only survive for most by having some areas of reduction and tough decisions. This may not lead to everyone feeling safe, but if done honestly there will still be trust.
And there will be times where individual leaders don't sacrifice themselves.
None the less I think there's a valuable perspective here and I like how it fits to my understanding of some of Peter Block's work.
Captain David Marquet's talk on Greatness. It illustrates how he took a nuclear submarine from the worst performing ship with the lowest moral in the US Navy and turned it into the highest graded ship ever.
