I have just completed a refreshing training program for managers who had never seen leadership as an organization competence; that ensures the efficiency, effectiveness and future of a business organization. We often assume that everyone knows this, but the sad thing is that we hardly act according to our beliefs. In fact, many organizations actually act contrary to the efforts of acquiring good leaders by not developing them once they are hired. These leaders are run down and decline in senior positions in the sincere belief that they know all there is to know about leadership. Many businesses grow their leaders by “experience”. If you use this non-challenging method as the only method of leadership development, you may develop passive or leaders who become loyal adherents to poor methods and then wonder why things never seem to change.
