As a senior officer for the US Army, one of my many responsibilities was growing leaders. This responsibility was a shared effort through the organization. In addition to a daily non-agent leadership development, the US military has formal training plans for different levels of your career to strengthen and develop your leadership skills.
The overall plan includes four steps that can be used in any company.
You bring new recruitment. Every business does this. The onboarding process involves sharing your vision, task and value. Businesses are interpreted in terms of goals, measures and values. Each business goal is clearly defined by example. The new council is taught how these goals are assessed, quantitative and nature. Lastly, their value is interpreted for them so that they can see how they contribute to the overall role of the organization.
You grow them up. This means that you prevent them from hindering your business. Initially, you present a vision, project, and value. However, you must have programs in place that reminiscent and reinforce these three important issues in your business. This must be while decision making takes place, in a way that you manage meetings; literally all aspects of daily action. There are opportunities to remind and strengthen daily. The process strengthens the organization and prepares it for difficult times.
You train them. You teach them that mistakes are inevitable and there are things you can do to minimize the damage. Just like in battle, it will happen, but we learn, grow and improve our sustainability. You must also teach the behaviors expected. You show this by shaping the values you will reward because these are the behaviors you expect. In addition, they train to fulfill the duties of other members. This enables them to become a power meter for you. They can easily step up when someone is out for a long time or when you have a layout.
You replace them. You allow your new leaders to gain incremental experience in situations where they have the opportunity to succeed. Leadership is similar to sports; You can only get better with exercise. You must allow your new leaders a chance to experience leadership. Then they assess progress. Train and guide them along their way. They build trust by gaining and applying talent.
Leadership is the choice of who you want to become, both you and the leaders you introduce. Leading on the basis of the Soldier Process © of values, values and values ensures that leaders are adults and within the organization, with a personality to create value for all stakeholders; shareholders, customers, employees and the public.
