Organizational researchers and human resources professionals have known for over twenty years that most leadership development occurs on-the-job, not in a classroom. Real Time Leadership Development provides guidance and tools, based on research and practices that leaders can use to fully leverage experience-based development for their own growth and to build the next generation of leaders in their organization. This book focuses on how leaders can execute business strategy and develop leadership potential in themselves and in their organizations at exactly the same time. Practical checklists and assessment tools throughout the volume provide indispensable help to current and aspiring leaders.
