Leaders Teaching Leaders

Organizations typically initiate a “leaders-teaching-leaders” model by having executives kick off a leadership initiative. Mature companies go much further by having leaders involved in the program design, delivery, and interacting in many stages throughout the initiative. Leaders may play a number of roles in a development initiative, such as:

  1. Strategist – Imparting knowledge of the organization’s strategy and business imperatives; 
  2. Change Agent – Encouraging leaders to move the organization forward or demonstrating a breakthrough effort; 
  3. Relationship Builder – Showing leaders how to leverage partnerships or networks; and, 
  4. Talent Developer – Helping leaders to develop their own talent and that of their teams.
