Leaders Learn Best ON THE JOB, Not in the Classroom

In one segment of an interview, Meredith Bell asked me "What's the best approach to take if you want to develop yourself as a leader to be effective with people?"

Creating books, videos and training programs for leadership development is a multi-billion dollar industry. But in my answer, I didn't focus in on the best of these resources. My answer may surprise you...

thank you thank you thank you Denny!!! this blog sings to my heart and aligns exactly with what I believe in. The model is the beginning, but what matters most is the skill practice.
My model of working with teams is all about
(1) sharing insights and tools,
(2) allowing time for practice/implementation to apply the new learnings
(3) coming back together to review and share challenges/results
all resulting in:
Inspired action
thank you thank you thank you
