You need to look at the top companies for developing your smarts. Raw talent is in just about everyone. How that talent is brought out into the business world is one aspect of what separates great companies from the hum-drum.
Think of it this way.
Let’s say you live in one of the super cities in this country. If you never travel you become stale and end up with uni-vision. Same with leadership development; cannot just look at what is taught inside your organization.
Smart companies encourage employees to find unique and challenging programs outside that will support the whole person, professionally and personally. Many great companies have sent their leaders and hi-potentials to Total Leadership Connections for continued growth and knowledge.
The core philosophy of Total Leadership Connections is that what we learned in our original organization, the family, is what we bring into the workplace. You really know this; just never think about it that much.
What you learned in the family about accountability, arguing, back-biting, betrayal, cooperation, and collaboration all began when you were a tiny kid.
And guess what: that is what you bring to work. Oh, not all the time, mainly when you are stressed. When stress is high, we all end up reverting back to the patterns of behavior we learned from the family.
