Long-term organizational success depends on quality leadership. Most organizations don’t have enough leaders or a deep enough “leadership bench” of junior leaders. Leadership expert Mark Miller explains why quality leadership is crucial, how organizations can develop a robust leadership culture and what best practices your company should pursue for effective leadership development. To tell his leadership story, Miller spins a fictitious tale of a business, its executives and their efforts to develop a strong leadership culture. His leadership development advice is solid, though his fable seems populated with cardboard characters and stiff interactions. Focus instead on Miller’s sharp leadership lessons. Bypassing the novelette, getAbstract recommends the meat-and-potatoes value here – solid principles you can use to develop a stronger leadership bench.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why your organization needs strong leaders,
- How to establish a “leadership pipeline,”
- Why organizations often fall short in leadership development,
- What your leadership development program should offer and
- How a strong leadership culture benefits your organization.
