Where Do Executives Gain Their Leadership Skills?
Even the best academic institutions do not fully develop skills like communication, delegation, time management, influencing, decision making, problem solving, goal achievement, focus and self-leadership. In most organizations, soft skills are acquired through two sources:
• Role Models • Trial & Error
Quality role models and mentors are, all-too-often, in short supply. Excessive trial and error gets expensive in terms of wasted time, flawed decision making, financial setbacks and lost opportunities from gaps in execution.
