There is the type of leader that we are, and the type of leader that we would like to be. How do you bridge the gap? I have had several conversations with managers and leaders who have tried to convince me that lack of time is the reason why they didn’t have a development conversation with their team during the month.

Recently I conducted a leadership effectiveness workshop. The purpose of this workshop was to share insights on what makes an effective leader. I also emphasized on THE key to being an effective leader.
Without a proper mindset, no matter how many leadership books you read, how many leadership workshops you attend, you might get temporarily motivated to use the tools you learned but you won’t see permanent results.
