“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent. “
– Douglas McArthur
Companies and organizations rise or fall on the leadership abilities of those who are in charge within the organization. Leaders in business today come in a wide variety of types, each seeming to bring their own leadership style to the table. Anyone who has worked for a company will be well aware of the successes or failures of various people in leadership positions. While everyone seems to enjoy the successes of a particular leader, it’s the failures that haunt the workplace for much longer. It goes without saying that quality leaders provide not only good morale and workplace organization, they also directly affect the company’s bottom line.
Just as people are not all born with the ability or desire to play sports, not all people are natural born leaders. Different personal traits and characteristics can help or hinder a person’s leadership effectiveness and require formalized programs for developing leadership competencies. Everyone can develop his or her leadership effectiveness, which takes focus, practice and persistence more akin to learning a musical instrument than reading a book.
What we have learned in business is that classroom-style training and associated reading is effective in helping leaders to know more about what is involved in leading well. However, knowing what to do and doing what you know are two very different outcomes. It is estimated that as little as 15% of learning from traditional classroom style training results in sustained behavioral change within the workplace.
So what is the best form of leadership training? That question probably has a variety of differing answers depending upon who you ask. At Forward March Inc. (FMI) we are less concerned with the variety of answers and more concerned with documented methodologies for achieving high quality leadership training. As they say, opinions are like belly-buttons, but at the end of the day what any company or organization needs is high quality proven leadership training and not opinions or half-baked theories.
