I Thought So.

I think boards of many companies need to take a harder look at what their checklist includes for deeming qualified candidates for the position of CEO to the organization that they serve. I talk about this in WHY?. Intuitively, I think leadership skills are instinctive and difficult to teach. You either are a leader, or it is not in your DNA. You either have the skills to inspire your employees to be motivated or you don’t.

Evidently, Gallup studies confirm my instincts: “Gallup’s research reveals that about one in 10 people possess high talent to manage. Gallup has also found that another two in 10 people exhibit some characteristics of functioning managerial talent and can function at a high level if their company invests in coaching and developmental plans for them.” HA! I knew it!

So, I ask you. What are the remaining seven out of ten people in upper management roles doing? What they aren’t doing is the reason it only took seven months to write WHY?. Read the full Gallup article here.
