Why the “DIY” Leadership Development Approach Doesn't Cut it Anymore

This post was originally published on this site There’s an old joke about finding talent in the business world: The war for talent is over. The talent won. It isn’t just the electrical distribution industry looking high and low for talent. Corporations in a myriad of industries are throwing up their arms, acutely aware of the scarcity of in-demand talent. It isn’t just an expensive proposition to attract employees – retention is tough as well. While many companies opt to develop inside talent to combat these issues, not all are actively grooming employees to become tomorrow’s leaders.  While that might seem surprising at first, it isn’t when you think about the studies that show 47% of managers don’t receive any training when they take on a new leadership role. And with the rapid advancements in technology and digitization, soft skills are becoming far more critical for mangers to possess.  In short, the “DIY approach” to leadership development that has been an accepted practice for decades creates leaders who can only realize a fraction of their full leadership potential. This practice also stunts the professional growth of those they lead. Case in point – if an employee’s job suddenly shifts from

Don't Just Promise, Prove It!

This post was originally published on this siteAs consumers, we all hear promises from salespeople about how great a product or service will be. With retail products, if they don’t live up to the promise or hype, most of the time you can return them and get your money back. And when a retailer, whether online or bricks and mortar, doesn’t stand behind their promise, you probably won’t do business with them again. When buying services and installed products things are a little different. As a consumer, if you’re not happy with the results, it’s harder to “return” it. For example, if you have your sprinkler system repaired, or a garage door replaced, and it doesn’t quite work the way it should, you can keep calling the service company back, but they may or may not do the work to your satisfaction. Unless you’re willing to stay on them and schedule appointment after appointment until they get it right, most of us compromise or give up, and decide it’s good enough and it’s just not worth the lost time and hassle.  As a result, you end up with a bad taste in your mouth about that company, and besides never
