So what did you think of Tessa’s post? Great wasn’t it!
As you read it and consider many of the posts we have written here at develop a leader dot com you will see remarkable similarity. Leadership is situational Tessa states. Certainly it is and the ability of the leader to wring out value from whatever learning opportunity they take on is exactly the right perspective. Developing awareness of self and others. (That reminds me I met the most fascinating lady whose specialty is emotional intelligence) It is my hope to have he help us discover this concept in the coming weeks.
In the mean time we have much value to derive from Tessa’s perspective on leadership training and development. Take her perspective on feedback. This is an activity that provides the opportunity to change bevahior and improve. As with any system it thrives on feedback. Just think the whole quality movement really is a complex construct of the need to measure and act upon feedback in systems. People are no different unless they are perhaps insane. No posturing here just reflection on the definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over hoping for a different result. No we need feedback and the opportunity to modify our behavious if we are to take our own leadership development seriously.
