Tons of money spent each year on leadership development programs and many, many of them fail. Individuals come back all fired up and within, oh maybe, two weeks, the bloom is off the rose.
Because we are looking in all the wrong places!
Leadership that starts with a premise that begins with today and moves into visioning the future fall short of what is real and the way our brains gather information over time.
Here is the skinny on the missing pieces: what we learned in our original organization, the family is what we bring into the workplace.
What we learned as kids about accountability, approval, back-biting, bargaining, communication and conflict we learned even before we entered kindergarten.
Now, this is not good or bad, it is, like gravity the way it is.
Thus, leadership programs that do not help individuals observe, understand and transform those patterns from the past are wasting precious time.

Read about how family patterns play a vital role in leadership development in “Don’t Bring It to Work” and make effective and long lasting change happen in your life and with all those on your work team.
