10 Ways To Develop Leaders
Some people are born leaders, but most of us learn the art of leadership along the way. The better you are at nurturing leadership potential in others, the more valuable you will be to your organization. To cultivate these skills, you must push people toward peak performance while convincing them of your commitment to their personal growth. In the book, The Little Book of Leadership Development: 50 Ways to Bring Out the Leader in Every Employee (Amacom/available now), authors Scott J. Allen and Mitchell Kusy enumerate strategies for creating a greater sense of ownership and direction within the ranks. Do so and you will distinguish yourself as an essential leader in your own right. Allen is an assistant professor of management at John Carroll University and author of the book, Emotionally Intelligent Leadership. Kusy is an international organization development consultant and a full professor in the PhD program in leadership and change at Antioch University.
