Great Leadership: 28 Leadership Development Recommendations for your Individual Development Plan

Great Leadership: 28 Leadership Development Recommendations for your Individual Development Plan | Leadership Development | Scoop.it
An interesting and insightful amalgamation of what leaders should be focusing on in their own development. A great look in the mirror from diverse perspectives! I particularly took note of the themes around knowing and leading your team through coaching, developing your team members and yourself, etc. I mean we call it leadership so it seems to make sense, but I think the stories we tell ourselves that keep us away from developing ourselves and our teams allows us to avoid what I call our core leadership responsibilities... Let's face it...if you were a professional athlete, the higher you climb in your respective organization doesn't mean less coaching, it actually means greater opportunity for specialized coaching (i.e., batting instruction, hitting instruction, watching film, etc.). The thing that I think that makes the pro athlete and the exceptional leader similar is the self-directed nature of seeking out these additional "developmental" opportunities. My question to all of us then is, what are you doing today to sharpen yourself as a leader?

Steve Junion's insight:

Appreciate the methodologies they employed...  The process they used to first gain executive support and then support from the organization was critical...and is critical to the work I conduct.

 

AMP's business challenge efforts are also very intriguing; however, they have yet to determine any business results...I would like to see what the initial results are, even if the tangible benefits are yet to be identified. 

 

I'm also wondering how they will train their executives on executive coaching themselves...  Love the concept of being able to have them turn coach and mentor to future participants, but what is all involved.

 

I also appreciate how they link it / complement AMP initiatives designed to support diversity (i.e. flex time, job sharing, etc.)

 

Other observation includes that this innagural experience is for a select group of 14 individuals; however, they go through a nomination process...this is something to consider for WIL 2014
