Finally, a way to make leadership learning stick and change the way your organization communicates to get simple, practical results.
In Robert’s book, The Offsite: A Leadership Challenge Fable, the key characters learn leadership is not about title, position or being the decider – that’s positional authority. It’s not about costume changes, knowing it all, creating a fearful atmosphere, or demanding obedience from others. It is about choosing to close the gap between your beliefs and behaviors with openness, honesty and authenticity. Moreover, leadership is about collaboration, asking questions that promote learning and creating an atmosphere of innovation that inspires others to want to join with you in accomplishing noble endeavors.
Through the process of becoming more self-aware, The Offsite characters also learn that real leadership is for everyone. It’s a way of life.
However, leadership success equals practice, practice and more practice. Experts share that it takes hours of practice, some say 10,000 hours, to become expert in a skill. But to improve our leadership ability, what should we practice?
Robert’s Four Commitments along with The Sixteen Sources of Leadership boils down reams of leadership theory into easily understandable, practical behaviors that earn results and lead to a lifetime of leadership success.
