Great leaders are almost always great learners.  They dedicate themselves to self-mastery over the entirety of their careers.

But.  They are often unable to see just how exceptional they are in leadership: setting context, influencing and weaving coalitions, building teams that execute with precision and timeliness, connecting team members to contribution, getting the best from others, building cohesion rather than divisiveness, inspiring people to come along, and seeing and knowing their people, as examples.

And therefore it can be difficult to teach it to others.

Sound familiar?

It’s true that leaders are always teaching by virtue of the fact that others are always watching.

But they also teach through active coaching.

By knowing how to develop leadership capacities in rising leaders in a way that’s authentic to them.

Which is why the coach needs a coach.

Are you investing in developing the people who are developing your people?
