Creating Business Excellence 2

It has been an interesting week for me so far because everyday I learn new things. And its been so cold that I would literally have to defrost my hands and legs immediately after I lock my room door. I wonder how it would be during winter?

Okay so again I learnt something very interesting....

Have I ever experienced terrible leadership? Have I ever experienced horrible coaching? Have I ever wished I was mentored better? I thought about these while Paul was sharing with us in class why it is appropriate for aspiring leaders/managers to consider a course in leader development before taking the crown. He did mention that in some well structured organisations, the hierachy is well outlined for each department as such that a technical engineer for example while climbing the ladder of leadership can in future become a Technical Manager or CTO (Chief Technical Officer) but he might not have the capacity to play the role of the CEO just unless he's equally DEVELOPED that skill.

And I would say must organisations may not necessarily follow the manner in the example I have stated above but have in some form frequently promoted people to managerial roles wrongly or just too quick!

So I thought again to myself would the answers to my questions above have been all No if the people who were supposed to play the leadership roles in my life-work-school-church had DEVELOPED themselves?

So as a future leader, I take the importance of leadership development for aspiring managers with me to the organisations I will be working with in future. I hope I am not alone here...
