leaders and followers
In order to succeed, organisations need leaders who are aimed in developing and supporting who produce the wealth of the organisation. In fact, this is crucial since organisations who depend on few people are organisations that have a very limited capabilities set, therefore, firms who want to excel should continuously invest in their people, promoting learning and innovation.
On the other hand, others could argue that investing in the workforce is costly and also, once improved their capabilities, employees could leave the organisation for a better position. Although this is undoubtedly true, since developing the workforce is time and resource consuming, leaders have to consider as well the impact, at organisational level, that could have retaining a workforce grow in an environment where learning and critical thinking are not nurtured. In this light, leaders should be aimed in building an environment where company and employees have a common goal.
