Why So Many Leadership Programs Ultimately Fail

Why So Many Leadership Programs Ultimately Fail | Business Coaching for Executives | Scoop.it

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

Have you tried a leadership program? Did it work for you?

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 16, 2013 6:54 AM

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.

Nearly 100 Chinese firms are among the 500 largest—what is the corporation of the future?

Nearly 100 Chinese firms are among the 500 largest—what is the corporation of the future? | Business Coaching for Executives | Scoop.it

Be prepared for a future in which the concept of a corporation - how it's structured, how it's governed - will vary widely. 


If companies didn't begin with a culture of purpose and principles, an internationally, ethnically diverse membership will demand it, as universal values and ethical codes facilitate communication, coordination and cooperation. More companies will be shape-shifting bundles of activities, designed for flexibility rather than stability and predictability.

 

To deal with a rapidly changing environment and the fluid boundaries of business units that come and go, more work will be done by crosscutting project teams, and there will be more bottom-up self-organizing—a matrix on steroids. Companies will embrace the always-on, always-accessible, democratizing communication of social media, or fall behind.

Don’t Sell a Product, Sell a Whole New Way of Thinking

Don’t Sell a Product, Sell a Whole New Way of Thinking | Business Coaching for Executives | Scoop.it

Companies that successfully market and sell innovation are able to shift how people think not only about their product, but about themselves, the market, and the world.


Shifts in thinking don’t happen overnight, any more than going to a weekend yoga workshop makes you flexible. Think of it like learning a second language or building a new habit – in this case a mental habit. People need to see how the new way of thinking plays out in different contexts and situations.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, July 21, 3:46 PM

"The problem is that data, information, and value propositions are not enough to sell innovative products. We all know the saying, “I’ll believe it when I see it.” But when it comes to innovation, the truth is often “I’ll see it when I believe it.” To sell your idea to executives, buyers, and users, you have to change not only what they think, but how they think. Without the right mental model, they won’t see the problem, understand the benefits, or make the change."
