We have learned a lot over the last 50 years about leadership development. Action learning. 70/20/10. The 9 box matrix. The power of feedback (360s). EQ. Learning Agility. Engagement. We know the critical competencies needed for success. Derailment. Difficult conversations. Personal coaching. Assignmentology. All of the above and other findings have contributed to improving what we do to select, train, develop, and coach people to management and leadership success.
What’s next? My guess is applying brain science to helping managers and leaders lead. Brain science is exploding. There are daily new findings. It’s in the business and popular press (a danger?). Obama has created a program called the decade of the brain to accelerate research. The funding agencies are awarding grants. David Rock (and others) say we know about 5% of what we will eventually know about how the brain works and the relationship of that to management and Leadership. 5% is a good start. I will offer some early insights into how knowledge of the brain can increase our effectiveness at helping people lead.
