Why #leadership development doesn’t mean ‘winner-take-all’! (A #solutionfocus reblog of @alankay1)

I think you will spend 30 seconds reading this post

Very nice article (as usual) from Fry The MonkeysAlan KayWhy #leadership development doesn’t mean ‘winner-take-all’!

I especially like the questions one can ask oneself (or others!):

  • Suppose my leadership capabilities got even better, what would I be doing that would be useful to others?
  • What one thing could be better about my leadership abilities?
  • In what situations does my leadership help others? What would they say they value about my leadership?
  • Suppose I was taking a leadership development course, what goals / outcomes would I be focused on? How would that be useful to my organization?

  1. Thank you Nicholas, I appreciate your posting my blog on leadership development. You cite my questions. It’s always interesting when you try asking yourself solution focused questions.

  2. Hello Alan thanks for taking the time to comment here. I really like your website. I even bought the book in PDF ( which is something I rarely do! 🙂

    Now, mixing your questions with some other conversations I had, I think the word “leadership” may be replaced by “strengths” and the questions would still hold a lot, if not more. For instance, if one take the VIA character Survey (free at one can identify his/her own top 5 strengths.

    I already have leadership at #1, though thinking about using the next ones really is an exciting opportunity!
