The Accidental Leader


A recent article I read keyed me into the problem that plagues most all organizations I’ve worked with. The problem is not that you haven’t been developing your leaders up to that point, the problem is you think your start developing them when you implement a training or coaching program. WRONG. Developing an employee, ANY employee, starts the moment you hire them…and perhaps even before.

Each of us is in the process of development. We are constantly becoming. As a result of our experiences, observations, and personal preferences, we are now the person we see in the mirror. Therefore, whether you are being intentional about it or not, your organization is developing your employees. Maybe just not in the direction you need or want.
