QUESTION OF THE MONTH: Why does Legitimate Leadership return to our company periodically (at approximately 7-year intervals)
ANSWER: It depends on the reasons for Legitimate Leadership returning. If it is to bring newly-appointed employees on board regarding the leadership ethos, this is perfectly understandable. If it is to conduct a refresher or expose the company to new Legitimate Leadership products, this is also perfectly in order. Firstly, care and growth is not a once-off vaccination but requires constant re-enforcement; secondly, care and growth/Legitimate Leadership content is also constantly evolving.
If the reason for Legitimate Leadership returning is due to the application of the leadership concepts and tools having become rusty, misused or unused then this is of some concern. But unfortunately this does sometimes happen because:
Legitimate Leadership is not about attending courses but rather about living it consistently on a daily basis and making it part of the DNA of an organisation. – Peter Jordan, Associate, Legitimate Leadership.
