Sports day

I took a day off to attend my eldest daughter's sports day today.

She's the one who has just dropped the ball - so no prizes but it was still a big thrill for mummy and daddy to see how much she's developed recently.

What would it be like if organisations enabled managers to become this passionate about developing people at work?

(And what am I doing?: developing a junior team of consultants at Buck as much as I am able. And mentoring one of my executive MBA students at CBA through her thesis.)

  1. I've just come across this quote by Hay consultant, Emmanuel Gobillot, author of The Connected Leader, in September's CIPD Conference programme.

    A redefinition of leadership for the twenty-first century:

    "After every interaction, the question 21st century leaders must ask themselves is: 'Have I made this person stronger and more capable to achieve in the future?'"

    This has got to be the way forward...
