“If there is no transformation inside each of us, all the structural change in the world will have no impact on our institutions” ~ Peter Block”
Why traditional leadership fails
Virtually all leadership training today uses an approach that imparts someone else’s knowledge: an instructor in front of a classroom; an article that outlines a set of dos and don’ts; a website that describes how a firm doubled its revenue. This “third-person” learning is useful for tackling procedural problems such as how to write a performance review with teeth or how to size up a new market. But, while “third-person” education leaves learners with theories and explanations, it provides limited “first-person” access to transforming oneself as a leader.
Welcome to the Inward Journey of Leadership
Personal transformation is about creating access to a broader range of ways of being, thinking, and acting in order to be more effective in dealing with those challenges for which conventional strategies are inadequate. Until we free ourselves from our hidden, long-standing beliefs and presuppositions about leadership, we will not be able to approach the issues from a different perspective, and we will not generate sustainable solutions for the world’s most vexing challenges.
