John Michel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 8:29 PM

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as "leadership development," which ends up leaving so much on the table. Training and development programs almost universally focus factory-like on inputs and outputs — absorb curriculum, check a box; learn a skill, advance a rung; submit to assessment, fix a problem. Likewise, they leave too many people behind with an elite selection process that fast-tracks "hi-pos" and essentially discards the rest. And they leave most people cold with flavor of the month remedies, off sites, immersions, and excursions — which produce little more than a grim legacy of fat binders gathering dust on shelves.

What if, instead of stuffing people with curricula, models, and competencies, we focused on deepening their sense of purpose, expanding their capability to navigate difficulty and complexity, and enriching their emotional resilience? What if, instead of trying to fix people, we assumed that they were already full of potential and created an environment that promoted their long-term well-being? In other words, what if cultivating a successful inner life was front and center on the leadership agenda?

Leadership development programmes often fall far short of expectations and rarely lead to long term change. Developing people is a process not an event.  Also check out - www.corporatecoachingnetwork.com.au

Built to Become: Corporate Longevity and Strategic Leadership | Stanford Graduate School of Business

Built to Become: Corporate Longevity and Strategic Leadership | Stanford Graduate School of Business | Leadership Values | Scoop.it

This paper discusses the phenomenon of “built to become:” an open-ended ongoing process for which there is no grand ex ante plan possible and which unfolds through a series of transformations in the course of the strategic evolution of long-lived companies. It develops a “strategic leadership” framework to examine and explain corporate becoming. This framework involves defining the key tasks of strategic leadership and identifying four key elements of the company’s strategic leadership capability. The paper presents the conceptual foundation of a book entitled Built to Become that examines the strategic evolution of Hewlett Packard as a long-lived company. (academic)

The paper presents the conceptual foundation of a book entitled Built to Become that examines the strategic evolution of Hewlett Packard as a long-lived company. (academic)


But as it concerns emergent patterns it speaks to our core topic of mapping and synthesizing value patterns that are not visible to the naked eye and largely explainable through a system that is open to friction and collisions.

Values Based Leader

At Luck Companies we believe all human beings have extraordinary potential. And as leaders, we believe we have the ability to cultivate that potential in others, and positively impact the lives of those around us. To do so requires us, the leaders, to make a conscious choice to work first on ourselves, ensuring our own state of awareness and alignment to in turn ignite the potential in others.

Efficienarta's insight:

My sense is that Boards have a fiduciary duty to be more inclusive in their development of next generation leaders. The war to attract and develop talent that is better then the talent in your competitors demand it. Moreover, the broader the talent pool the lower the risk of Boards being boxed into agreeing excessive remuneration for top executives.

The Best Leaders “Talk the Walk”

The Best Leaders “Talk the Walk” | Leadership Values | Scoop.it

One of the most ubiquitous aphorisms in business is that the best leaders understand the need to “walk the talk” — that is, their behavior and day-to-day actions have to match the aspirations they have for their colleagues and organization.


But the more time I spend with game-changing innovators and high-performing companies, the more I appreciate the need for leaders to “talk the walk” — that is, to be able to explain, in language that is unique to their field and compelling to their colleagues and customers, why what they do matters and how they expect to win.


The only sustainable form of business leadership is thought leadership. And leaders that think differently about their business invariably talk about it differently as well.

Tony Adams's curator insight, August 10, 10:21 PM

Very thought provoking.  We often talk about "walking the talk" but in this article, the focus is very much on leaders "talking the walk" - explaining "in language that is unique to their field and compelling to their colleagues and customers, why what they do matters and how they expect to win". 

 

I like the idea that thinking differently about the way we approach our business leads us to talk differently about it as well - Thought Leadership as a catalyst for helping people see and understand our business in a different way.

 

A really interesting post.
