Great leadership is often cited as the key ingredient to a successful organization, whether it’s a company, non-profit, club or sports team. Conversely, underperformance and failure is frequently attributed to a lack of leadership. It’s an elusive concept. Many of us assume that leadership is an inherent attribute: you’re either a born leader or you’re not.
This could not be further from the truth. Leaders can, and usually are, developed over a period of time. Successful leaders have mastered a range of skills. They are seldom just born that way.
The AMS Group difference
Many leadership development programs attempt to teach leadership skills in one session – whether it’s a keynote speech of 90 minutes or a five-day intensive leadership retreat. The reality is each of these skills needs to be applied before they are really learned. The uniqueness of The AMS Group’s approach is the focus on developing one skill at a time and requiring leaders to apply that skill in the workplace.
