Leadership Programs Have a Short Half Life

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

You just finished participating in a leadership workshop and it was out of this world. You had so many insights and breakthroughs that you’re excited to get back to work and apply what you learned. The first few days, you’re on a post-workshop hi

gh and you seem more effective. At the very least, you are more attentive to others and your communications appear more transparent and powerful. Over time, however, life stagnates and the combination of forces, both external and inside your own psyche, start to take over so that within weeks, you are back to your older pre-workshop leadership self.

This happens repeatedly to about 95% of everyone who undertakes a leadership workshop. These workshops are often powerful and enlightening, but the half-life effect is somewhat short. The biggest challenge in becoming a conscious and effective leader is not the insight one gets about oneself and about leadership – it’s the application. The world of business is complex and whatever forces that created you as a leader are mighty indeed. Consequently, it is not easy to learn to become a great leader. It takes time and concerted effort.

Having been someone who has designed and led these leadership workshops for 2 ½ decades, I have witnessed this time upon time. As a result, years ago, except on rare occasions where there was ample follow up and support, I stopped offering leadership workshops to the public. Instead, I began offering an on-going leadership learning experience. Like Vistage, Young Presidents Organization, and similar groups, it is a monthly meeting designed for learning. Unlike them, however, it is not focused on business as a whole, but purely on becoming a remarkable leader. I started these assemblies with an insight that a leadership learning group would provide coaching to leaders and a whole lot more. The group environment plus the support and encouragement from other members of the group, combined with the added responsibility of each member being accountable to themselves and others, would significantly enhance the learning experience. After 4 years of experimenting followed by 3 years of consistent success, I’m confident that the process is meaningful, more powerful than anything I’ve seen or heard about. As a result of this outstanding success, I am seeking to expand my CEO and Senior Executive leadership learning groups. The purpose of the Leadership Learning Group is to help individual CEOs and Senior Executives become extraordinary, and to do so in a time sensitive manner that consistently reinforces leadership insights so they become an enduring part of the leader’s practice.

OBJECTIVES

Drawing from over 30 years in-depth leadership experience and research in the human sciences, I work monthly with a small, select group of leaders to offer tools, techniques, and learning experiences that generate heightened leadership skills. As a result of participation in the Leadership Learning Group, participants experience:

  • Significant improvement in their ability to lead teams and whole organizations
  • Enhanced problem solving and decision making capabilities
  • Greater flexibility to fit one’s own leadership style to the particular situation at hand
  • Improved effectiveness in managing the performance of others
  • Accountability and support to deliver on commitments from one session to the next
  • Heightened ability to inspire commitment and shared responsibility for results

ON-GOING PROCESS

These goals are achieved by exposing participants to a universal set of principles of high performance leadership and helping them to gradually embody these principles..
These principles include:

  • Looking at the organization as a system
  • Gaining alignment with teams, strategically and tactically
  • Developing trust
  • The importance of honesty and openness
  • Synergy and collaboration
  • Leadership as an expression of integrity
  • Courage and risk-taking

The group meets monthly for 5 hours in San Rafael, CA. Sessions revolve primarily around “cases” or situations that participants bring to the meeting, enabling each individual to explore ways of strengthening their leadership effectiveness in “real-time” situations. Common themes are explored, and principles and powerful ways of examining leadership will be offered. Through deep exploration, inquiry, and dialogue, insights for leading naturally unfold. Together, we create a confidential, open, environment within which to deepen participants’ leadership capability.

Don't Worry

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

I saw this recently on the internet and it struck me. I do worry sometimes, and almost always it drains my energy and pulls down others around me as well. And yet, worrying does nothing
