How do you “form” a leader?

October 20, 2015

“Nothing is more critical to the long-term health and sustainability of your company than leadership,” writes Linkage’s Mark Hannum in Training Industry.

But as you’ll see Mark explain in this short video, there’s a big difference between leadership “development” and leadership “formation.”

Leadership development helps leaders improve their “skills”—to do things right.

While the best leaders, the leaders who have been “formed,” do more than just do things right—they do the right things.

Are you “developing” leaders for shortsighted goals or “forming” them for the long term?
