Recently, at a conference I was asked how I develop good leaders. “First,” I responded, “you need to know what a good leader looks like.”

As you prepare to develop leaders, which type of person do you want to be? Do you want to know what you’re looking for in potential leaders and be able to find them? Or do you want to hope somebody comes and finds you? It’s your choice.

There are a few avenues that require some intuition but could ultimately fix that which has a chokehold on progress.

I'm gonna cut to the chase.

I've observed for many years a cyclical epidemic. Managers who don't know how to manage, and who are not managing ...and who are not helped in any useful, sustainable way.

Clearly, I am a bit proponent of training and development. Particularly when it comes to leadership development. I fully believe the more leaders are given development opportunities, the better the organization overall.

I will fight anyone to the death who feels differently.

Do you have an intentional leadership development strategy?

I must admit coming into a national conference for the first time was somewhat daunting for me. There was not a feeling of nervousness, but more of a fear of being overwhelmed. Knowing that there’s going to be tons of information given in just a few days, I wanted to come in with a clear objective.

The world is changing at a pace we have never seen before. A quick look at your Twitter feed or news scroll will show you just how volatile and uncertain the world has become. I believe our greatest challenge in navigating an unpredictable world is remembering to stick to the basics: Get your leaders right and connect with your people!

You’ve heard it said again and again, and perhaps you’ve experienced it yourself: People don’t leave organizations—they leave bosses. 

Bad bosses come in many varieties: abusive and toxic, lazy and incompetent. There are few things more miserable in the workplace, and an organization full of bad bosses will kill the culture.
