Every organisation dreams of having enough leaders. Yet most take a haphazard or inconsistent approach to leadership development. They either assume they can find new leaders when they need them or they believe leaders are born-they can’t be made. The consequences of this thinking are devastating, creating a perpetual shortfall of high caliber leaders; without them, no organisation can thrive.
The good news: this problem is solvable! Bestselling author and Chick-fil-A executive Mark Miller describes how any organisation can create a culture in which leaders are routinely and systematically developed, resulting in a surplus of leaders. Miller details how to nurture leaders throughout the organisation, from the front lines to the executive ranks. He provides a game plan for organisations to create a deep and effective leadership bench.
To bring his ideas to life, Miller uses the story of Blake, a new CEO, and Charles, and old friend and colleague, as they search for best practices from around the world to ensure a continuous supply of their most precious asset-leaders. Blake and his team then translate their findings into a practical plan that any organisation can use to create a leadership culture that will ensure a sustainable competitive advantage and long-term success.
