The Lead Change Group is pleased to have Leaders Made Here as our February 2017 sponsor. In this book, bestselling author and Chick-fil-A executive Mark Miller provides a game plan for organizations to create a deep and effective leadership bench.
Partner Highlight: Leaders Made Here
As Mark explains in the book, every organization dreams of having enough leaders. Yet most take a haphazard or inconsistent approach to leadership development. They either assume they can find new leaders when they need them, or they believe leaders are born, they can’t be made. The consequences of this thinking are devastating, creating a perpetual shortfall of high caliber leaders; yet without them, no organization can thrive. The good news: this problem is solvable.
To bring his ideas to life, Miller uses the story of Blake, a new CEO, and Charles, an old friend and colleague, as they search for best practices from around the world to ensure a continuous supply of their most precious asset: leaders. Blake and his team then translate their findings into a practical plan that any organization can use to create a leadership culture that will ensure a sustainable competitive advantage and long-term success.
