What Are Your Leadership Training Plans in 2012?

I don’t necessarily mean what classes HR is going to mandate for your employees. What are you working towards? How will you improve in 2012?

In my experience, successful leaders are always antsy. They are always looking forward, constantly working towards something, training to become better, more advanced. As a leader, your training is just as important as anyone else’s. So what training could help you become a better leader?

One of my CEO clients used to be deathly afraid of public speaking. As you can imagine, this is not good for the CEO of a public company. Speaking engagements abound when you’re CEO. He decided that if he wanted to be a better leader he needed to become a better speaker. So he took acting lessons. I assure you, standing in front of a group of your peers and doing silly improve exercises really does help you get over the fear of standing—and speaking—on a stage.

What type of training would help you overcome your fears, shortcomings or weaknesses?

Be honest and creative…and have some fun with it.
