“I’ll bet most of the companies that are in life-or-death battles got into that kind of trouble because they didn’t pay enough attention to developing their leaders.”

~Wayne Calloway, former Chairman, Pepsico, Inc.


Two points to express here:  First, if you are a leader of leaders, what are you intentionally doing to ensure those leaders you manage are growing their capabilities and sharpening their existing skills that are most needed for today’s and tomorrow’s context and challenges?  Second, what are you doing to challenge yourself on your own capabilities and what are you doing to build your agility and effectiveness?  Constant, intentional development of yourself and your team members is your main role and responsibility.  How would you rate yourself in this regard?  What can you do to improve in this key area?
