He Said WHAT?
When I think about some of the most difficult issues I've had to address, the examples at the top of my list are all related to leadership. Let's face it, too often we hire "superstars" without giving them a chance to learn and grow. On the job mentoring is fine for that select few that have "natural" leadership abilities (although I would submit that their "natural" abilities are a product of an environment that was chock-full of positive leadership role-models); but, how many leaders have you seen fail over the years that should have been effective? Why do we continue to allow that to happen?
I'd love to hear from you.
