Do you have a “teachable point of view?”

I recommend this article by Eli Cohen and Noel Tichy, about their leadership research.

How Leaders Develop Leaders

Some of their key ideas:

To develop others, leaders must have a teachable point of view.

A teachable point of view is a leader’s opinion on what it takes to win in his or her business and what it takes to lead other people.

A teachable point of view involves in-depth preparation and you must never miss an opportunity to communicate it.

Leaders create stories about the future of their organizations. A teachable point of view becomes the basis for leaders to present a dynamic, compelling story to others.

These stories create a case for change, a vision of where the organization is going, and an understanding of how to get there.

Once leaders have a story, they take bold actions that bring about massive and lasting change.
