Creating Leaders: Effective Programs | Human Capital Adviser | Genuine Leadership | Scoop.it
A successful leadership development program produces positive change at all levels of an organization. It changes how employees perceive their leaders, deal with uncertainty as well as opportunity, meet customer needs, and set expectations for growth. For managers, it alters how they deal with complex problems, engage and motivate their people, link the organization’s vision to their team, and enhance performance. It grants a manager the tools necessary to grow from knowing how to manage a few to leading many. Within the organization as a whole, it assists with setting the standard for success, aligning resources with desired outcomes, improving the quality of decision-making, increasing collaboration, and addressing how best to interact with our environment.

Or are we denying the feeling of the emotion as well? There is much written and talked about regarding leaders and emotions and acting on emotion. I worry that with the idea of not acting on every emotion that we are teaching leaders to deny the feeling exists.
