You’re Probably Wasting Money on Leadership Development

Wasting Money

Wasting Leadership Development

Business leaders I know react one of two ways to this statement.

  1. Ha!  It goes to show what you know.  We don’t bother with that fluff.  We’re too busy working.  Our leaders learn on the job.
  2. No way!  We know how important it is to equip our new leaders with how to do things.  We know we need to groom future leaders.  We do stuff…and things…and read books by Lencioni, Collins, Reis, and Pink.

To group 1, I don’t need to say anything because you aren’t reading this.

To group 2, yes.  I’m talking to you.  I am you.  So this stuff is tricky.  And at least we’re doing something, right?

I’ll say it again.

You are almost certainly wasting money on leadership development.
