Why Leadership-Development Programs Fail

Why Leadership-Development Programs Fail | Leadership | Scoop.it

Sidestepping four common mistakes can help companies develop stronger and more capable leaders, save time and money, and boost morale. 



Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Jerry Busone's insight:

Overall this Quote says it all,"Embedding leadership development in real work; fearlessly investigating the mind-sets that underpin behavior; and monitoring the impact so as to make improvements over time." I believe my group is on track.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 3, 2014 8:52 AM

The four common mistakes are:


1. Overlooking context

Context is a critical component of successful leadership. A brilliant leader in one situation does not necessarily perform well in another. Academic studies have shown this, and our experience bears it out.


2. Decoupling reflection from real work

When it comes to planning the program’s curriculum, companies face a delicate balancing act. On the one hand, there is value in off-site programs (many in university-like settings) that offer participants time to step back and escape the pressing demands of a day job. On the other hand, even after very basic training sessions, adults typically retain just 10 percent of what they hear in classroom lectures, versus nearly two-thirds when they learn by doing.


3. Underestimating mind-sets

Becoming a more effective leader often requires changing behavior. But although most companies recognize that this also means adjusting underlying mind-sets, too often these organizations are reluctant to address the root causes of why leaders act the way they do.


4. Failing to measure results

We frequently find that companies pay lip service to the importance of developing leadership skills but have no evidence to quantify the value of their investment. When businesses fail to track and measure changes in leadership performance over time, they increase the odds that improvement initiatives won’t be taken seriously.


Menno Molendijk's curator insight, April 7, 2014 6:33 AM

Great article! An acknowledgement of our experience and customer dedication. Want to change? Apply the underlying rules.

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast | Leadership | Scoop.it

Culture eats strategy for breakfast, technology for lunch, and products for dinner, and soon thereafter everything else too.Why? Because company culture, a concept pioneered by Edgar Schein, is the operationalizing of an organization’s values. Culture guides employee decisions about both technical business decisions and how they interact with others. Good culture creates an internal coherence in actions taken by a very diverse group of employees.

"“You can’t complain here,” Tamara explained. “If you see something wrong, you must fix it. We say it is a great opportunity to come up with a solution, and this is where many of our best programs have come from. Anything can be changed. We aren’t victim to anyone. We own the culture.”"

Sandeep Gautam's curator insight, June 11, 2014 1:23 AM

Culture matters and it matters immensely!

Tobias Beckwith's curator insight, July 14, 2014 11:27 AM

This seems to be a theme for my day... this is the third place I"ve encountered the idea, and it's not even 9am yet. When we seek to create change in the world, all too often we ignore the most powerful thing working against us - the culture in which we're working. So how can you work with that? Make your change "fit" the culture? Find ways to change the culture itself?

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | Leadership | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.

Managing For Disruption

Managing For Disruption | Leadership | Scoop.it

Tradition embraces stability.  Time honored principles get that way because they have strong track records of success.  The tried and true, extrapolated into the future, often looks like a sure thing, while deviating from historical norms can look downright foolish.


Yet the funny thing about the future is that there’s no guarantee that it will look like the past.  Contexts change and when they do, old rules no longer apply.  Following them blindly does not honor the past, but diminishes it by confusing fealty with wisdom.


Since 1960, the average lifespan of a company on the S&P 500 has fallen from more than 60 years to less than 20.  The power of technology will increase as much in the next 18 months as it has in the last 30 years.


Clearly, technology cycles have begun to outpace planning cycles.  We need to learn to manage not for stability, but for disruption.

Lead at your best

Lead at your best | Leadership | Scoop.it

Five simple exercises can help you recognize, and start to shift, the mindsets that limit your potential as a leader. 

 

As important as mindsets are, we often skip ahead to actions. We adopt behavior and expect it to stick through force of will. Sadly, it won’t if we haven’t changed the underlying attitudes and beliefs that drove the old behavior in the first place. Making matters worse, our behavior affects other people’s mindsets, which in turn affect their behavior.

 

A leader’s failure to recognize and shift mindsets can stall the change efforts of an entire organization. Indeed, because of the underlying power of a leader’s mindsets to guide an entire organization toward positive change, any effort to become better leaders should start with ourselves, by recognizing the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that drive us.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 23, 2014 10:56 AM

I once listened to a School manager repeat the phrase "we are going to hit it out of the ball park" numerous times during a meeting. The next we were told he had been promoted. Coaching has to involve genuine and honest relationships. It is not glib phrases and cheer leading. It involves rolling up the sleeves and listening carefully to others and helping them find solutions.

(From the article): Your company doesn’t have to get rid of managers or implement some formal system to adopt practices that will help your employees flourish. You do, however, have to build a foundation of trust and set up ways to guide and enable your employees to be collaborative, peer-managing leaders.

 

Moving towards bosslessness, as with these three approaches, is a process of figuring out a better way for great employees to thrive and develop great companies.
