7 Questions to Help You Develop Your Leadership Point of View

As an avid reader and student of leadership, one of the dangers I have faced is the numerous, sometimes contradictory leadership point of views from leadership experts. Every leader communicates what they believe is the most important leadership behaviors, traits, and characteristics in their books. After reading hundreds of books on leadership, I often found myself drowning in the mass amount of leadership without any coherency on how these point of views coalesce together. I was becoming more of a curator of leadership content instead of developing my own leadership point of view. Ken Blanchard was sold on this idea after reading Noel Tichy’s ...

Ken Blanchard on How Great Leaders GROW

If you are born between 1982 and 2002, you are a member of the Generational Y (a.k.a Millennial) cohort. As a member of this cohort myself, I see a prevailing belief that derailed the growth of many emerging leaders. In essence, the belief that only experience and age can enable someone to become a leader has been an attitude endemic among Millennials.
