I just read this in an article focused on leadership development that should "connect closely to market realities" (HBR-Blue Ocean Leadership). The article’s authors wrote “Blue Ocean Strategies”, published in 2005, and it appears they are expanding their concept into the leadership development realm.
I recommend the HBR article. And here is what really caught my attention: “Distribute leadership across all management levels”. Wow, I’ve been talking about this for years, and many of my clients “get it”. If you want to learn more go to www.topviewleadership.com where you will find our “Middle Managers Leadership Coaching Program” I strongly believe, as do the HBR authors, that today’s and tomorrow’s organizations need leaders at all levels to be successful.
What are you doing to develop your Middle Managers? Let’s talk!
