Leadership Assessment – FINAL Post – Play Chess, Not Checkers

• Do you seize learning opportunities and focus on immediate performance problems for your employees?
• Do you observe the behavior of your direct reports?
• Do you work with the employees you are coaching to generate alternative approaches or solutions that you
can consider together?
• Do you always follow up on a coaching discussion to make sure progress is proceeding as planned?
“The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born – that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.”
-Warren Bennis
