In February, a small group of millennials from diverse business backgrounds came together in Austin, Texas, for my pilot LeaderShaping program. In the weeks that followed, I have stayed in touch with these leaders and followed their progress as they worked to implement what they learned in their companies.
One recent email reminded me once again why I love providing leadership training. The following testimonial is from David Lint, Chief Operating Officer of the Dryden Group:
David’s frustration and his struggle to make an effective transition into his new leadership role is all too common. Young stars are recognized for their accomplishments with a promotion into management. But, with no guidance as to what it means to be a manager, they find themselves dictating assignments rather than inspiring ideas.
Great leaders know that they won’t be measured by what they can accomplish but by what they can inspire others to accomplish.
I’m excited that David discovered how to make that leap to next-level leadership at our February event, and I can’t wait to see where he goes from here.
