There are several fantastic leadership development programs you can attend to improve your abilities. The best programs can take several days and cost thousands of dollars, yet are worth every minute and every penny if you are able to create better results throughout your team or organization.
That said, I can sum the knowledge of the ages up in three simple steps. At the risk of putting myself out of a job, let me share the essence of every outstanding leadership program I’ve come across:
1. Only hire really great people.
2. Help them understand the results you want them to create and why those results are important.
3. Provide feedback and accountability, but otherwise stay out of their way as much as possible.
That’s it. Simple, but easier said than done.
