On July 21, 2010 I was lucky once again to be a guest on DriveThruHR, a show that takes place Monday through Friday from 12pm - 12:30 EST, discussing anything related to the Human Resources industry. Lately we have been discussing training, OD and even leadership.

Bryan asked the question: “Leadership Development buzz words or business critical?” I believe it is business critical. However, many times we are just audience watching Leadership, rather than create actions that prove leadership. Listen in on my own thoughts.

Some points that were discussed:

  • First you must define ‘Leadership’ for your own organization.
  • There are various ways that people talk about leadership.
  • Leadership is a drive to ‘become better’ and/or a drive to ‘be the best.’
  • Leadership is a mindset and a way you deal with people.
  • There are levels of leadership. Within the culture and the individual.
  • Leadership programs are not necessarily for every facet of your organization.

Any thoughts or added parts to share? Not sure if we truly answered the question, since leadership is a moving target, but we can always scratch…
