Train Your Workers by Developing Your Leaders

Some managers view training and development as the same thing. Managers sometimes send their employees to training courses expecting them to return with a new set of behaviors that will make them more effective as leaders. Most often they are disappointed by the results.

It is like learning to play an instrument. You start off with training exercises (playing scales, learning chords, etc.), but it is only when you develop as a musician (leader) that you apply your training to making real music.

Emerging leaders, like emerging musicians, need the time, space, coaching, support, and experience to develop their training into mature leadership ability.

At the Human Potential Project we design and deliver developmental programs that produce powerful leadership skills. Our results speak for themselves. We look forward to helping you design and deliver your new future.

There is a labor storm brewing

We never know how long or how intense a storm will be but generally have a little bit of warning. We may get caught once without an umbrella or ignore the sounds of the siren. But, after getting drenched or seeing the devastation of the storm, we will always be prepared and astutely respond to the siren warnings.

Are you ready to head for the basement when the sirens roar?

To prepare for this storm we need to realize the workforce that we are going to be trying to attract and retain has changed a great deal during the past 3 – 4 years while the economy has been recessed. We won’t be able to use our traditional strategies to recruit and keep our workforce, but rather we will need to incorporate the numerous changes our workforce has taken to successfully survive the storm.

Leadership in the New World

If the events of the past have shown us anything it is that our current practices for business leadership and management are increasingly irrelevant. It is time for a dramatic and permanent overhaul – Time for a new focus on what people and organizations really need in order to cope and thrive in this new emerging reality.

With authentic leadership we can turn this to our advantage.

If we are going to reinvent ourselves to be as effective in this new world as we were in the old one we must let go of the tired practices of the past and embrace a new view of leadership and management by building new practices for learning. Each day we delay we fall further behind and endanger our future. These are risks that we need not take.

Stop Calling It Coaching …

There is no doubt that coaching is the most popular recent fad in realm of leadership and management development. The danger is that coaching is very quickly going to go the way of “empowerment,” a term that once meant something very specific but eventually came to mean nothing as people attempted to lump all of their corporate agendas under the then popular banner.

There are two fundamental differences between all of these practices.

Coaching is a distinct practice that requires a specific set of competencies. It is not the same thing as leading, managing, teaching, or mentoring. While it is true that leaders can be teachers or managers can be mentors, competence in any of these has no bearing on the practice of coaching.

Human Capital Wins the War

Today’s workers want to continuously improve and develop their competence so that they can remain competitive in the marketplace. Coordination workers want what they do to make a difference in the world. They want to be part of something that truly matters.

The fundamental aspect of work is the making and fulfilling commitments. Management isn’t about supervision; it is about the crafting, tracking, coordination, and ultimately the completion of commitments.       Read More …
