Some Initial Thoughts….

For a considerable part of my career I have been fascinated by the topic of leadership and in particular how ‘good’ leadership behaviours can be developed. I have been fortunate to have been led well on many occasions and also to have been led badly; often by the same person. In turn, I have both led well apparently and also, with greater frequency to have led badly. There seems to be a commonly held belief that most organisations, teams, groups, individuals would perform ‘better’ if the way in which they were led could be improved. Indeed research would suggest that the development of leadership talent is cited as being amongst the top 3 key concerns of business leaders. These reasons and many more justify the considerable investment made in Leadership Development yet, by and large, many of these programmes do not yield the leaders the organisations crave.
So what is it that we are missing…..
