Companies that are praised for building great leadership teams have one important thing in common. Their leadership teams are deeply involved in teaching, mentoring and developing other leaders.
These companies recognize the essentiality of having experienced leaders share perspectives on industry and marketplace evolution, lessons learned from good and bad decisions, and how to hone the skills required for success in the current business environment.
“Good To Great” author Jim Collins said, “It's one thing to make brilliant individual decisions, yet entirely another to cultivate a brilliant culture composed of wave upon wave of leaders who then teach generation upon generation of new leaders.”
Yet, many Leaders As Teachers programs fail to get the same results as the great ones.
The Leaders As Teachers Institute unlocks the mystery behind the most successful programs, and codifies success factors in step-by-step plans, helpful tools and case studies.
