Isolation and disengagement may be normal in the short-term. Things happen. Patterns of disengagement fracture teams. 7 reasons people disengage: #1. They want something. Shutting others out may be a message, “I’m not getting what I want and I don’t like it.” It’s a strategy we used when we were little. Do you remember scooping…

The problem – and possible solution – with Leadership Development | The Leadership Hub

The problem – and possible solution – with Leadership Development | The Leadership Hub | SkyeTeam: Leadership-Matters | Scoop.it
Featured Image: Body: Online leadership communities: where are we at?
I’m writing a series of three articles for HR Director on the state of play in using in-house online leadership communities to develop leaders in a ‘community of practice’, as an alternative to, or to supplement, existing leadership development.
The articles are based on eight years of running such a community of practice for one of the largest companies in the world.
Here's an extract from the article...
The Problem – And Possible Solution – With Leadership Development
Kamenev and Zinoviev were two Bolshevik leaders under Lenin. The impression Lenin made on them was so great that they both developed his handwriting.
Marty Sklar was one of Walt Disney‘s right-hand men and became Chief Imagineer for the Disney Corporation. Walt always used a red pen to make notes. Long after Walt‘s death, handwritten red notes were still being passed around the Imagineer department, because Sklar would only use a red pen. At Disney, when casting around for a creative solution, the question everyone uses, even now, is ―’What would Walt do?’
The imprint leaders leave on people is mysterious and the legacy of effective leaders runs deep.
But one thing it is not is standardized.
HR departments in large organizations, currently working diligently on standardized leadership behaviours, and development systems, please take note.
“We have been told for years now that there is a standard, homogenized great leader type or template we have to aspire to. Organizations deliver one training programme, people are expected to become clone leaders. That doesn‘t work. The marketplace tells us that difference works. Challenging the status quo and standing out from the pack is what makes a great leader.” Rene Carayol

Training to Be a Female CEO? | Leadership | Training Industry

There is an egregious gender gap among CEOs. Of the top 600 companies in the FTSE 100 and S&P 500, just 33 are led by women, because women face disproportionate challenges in the male-dominated corporate world. Although huge leaps have been made toward workplace equality, the culture and institutional policies of the business community persist in disadvantaging women. This gender bias has proven particularly difficult to overcome, because it is often unintentional and invisible to those who perpetrate it.

In evaluating candidates for a raise, for instance, an executive might feel that a male candidate looks more qualified for the position, simply because others in that position have looked like him. Important business deals might be finalized over the traditional round of golf, to which women may not be invited. Men in office meetings might habitually raise their voices to talk over women, without being conscious of doing so. Fortunately, however, attitudes are changing, and there is increasing awareness of gender inequality in the workplace.
