White Paper Abstract

Why is it that leaders who need development the most are the ones who balk the most? More importantly, what can we do as learning and development professionals to confront these excuses? In this somewhat irreverent examination of the excuses from leaders, we provide practical advice for those responsible for developing those leaders – advice that can help mitigate or eliminate the excuses and replace excuse with commitment.

Here are just three of the excuses addressed in the paper:

  1. I don’t need leadership development, because… that’s why I got promoted.
  2. I went to a leadership development class a number of years ago so… I already have the leadership skills I need.
  3. I’m too busy fighting fires …. I don’t have time to take time for leadership development class.
