Why the Leadership Industry Has Failed

Why the Leadership Industry Has Failed | Donna whispers to you, "Psssst! Want some free stuff?" | Scoop.it

Corporate training in the U.S. is a $70 billion market, and 35% of that is spent on management and leadership training. Over the last several decades, the industry has produced a recipe for how to be a successful corporate leader: Be trustworthy and authentic, serve others (particularly those who work for and with you), be modest, and exhibit empathetic understanding and emotional intelligence.

Steve Bax's curator insight, November 27, 2015 4:56 AM

Very stimulating article here. 

 

My take-aways are:

"It’s far more important for leaders to understand what a particular situation requires and to act in an appropriate way, says Pfeffer. “Leaders need to be true to what the situation demands and what the people around them want and need,”

In the end, says Pfeffer, we would all be better off accepting that our leaders are generally not truthful, authentic, modest, or trustworthy, largely the opposite of the message we get from the popular motivational leadership stories we hear. “All those stories and the inspiration we get from them change nothing,” he says. “The fundamental problem with this industry is the disconnect between what we say we want from our leaders and how they actually manage organizations.”

Jeffrey Pfeffer is the Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. His new book, Leadership BS: Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time, was published by Harper Business. Has to be worth a read!

 

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, November 29, 2015 9:47 AM

Interesting point of view.  What do you think. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 2, 12:10 PM

We confuse management with leadership. Both are important, but they are different. We cannot summarize leadership into a recipe of 7 habits, 3 phases, 5 outcomes, etc. It is too non-linear and complex.

A Simple Formula for Changing Our Behavior

A Simple Formula for Changing Our Behavior | Donna whispers to you, "Psssst! Want some free stuff?" | Scoop.it

Changing behavior doesn’t come naturally. If we want to learn, we need to tolerate the feeling of inauthenticity long enough to integrate the new way of being. Long enough for the new way of being to feel natural.

Changing patterns of behavior require both intention, focused experimentation and support from others.  This article supports the work of becoming a deliberately developmental organization.  Gaining the support of people you work with and live with is essential.

Use Storytelling to Explain Your Company’s Purpose | Donna whispers to you, "Psssst! Want some free stuff?" | Scoop.it

You'd think that a publication as mainstream as Denver's Business Journal is, could get this one right. Before one can have empathy, they must first posess the #1 Leadership trait: Listening.
