You must be coming across this phrase often, particularly if you are a business leader who tries to keep in touch with the current research and thinking in the fields of leadership and management. There is always some new thinking. You read an article, attend a leacture and pick up new thoughts. But before you have had any time to apply this to your business, you are either neck deep in your urgent business matters or there is a newer idea.
And then whatever happens to ‘old’ ideas and concepts? Does something gets useless just because it is ‘outdated’? Consider these, for example:
Blue Ocean Red Ocean Strategy
Six Sigma Lean Sigma for process improvements
360 degrees appraisal
Values based leadership
One can list many such concepts which were ‘in’ once upon a time. But these concepts still present useful perspectives if applied to specific situations. An intelligent leader can exploit these to check if any new insights and strategy points can be obtained by using these.
Learning Leadership programs and agenda generating workouts incorporate powerful principles behind various frameworks and ‘theories’ and give an opportunity to the leader to apply them to specific situations. Learning Leadership’s executive coaches assit the leaders in this.
Leaders sharpen their thinking and develop their agenda using the above and many more powerful principles throgh carefully designed executive coaching programs.
