Four Great Online Courses for Your Personal and Professional Development
Leaders need to refresh their thinking and methods for doing things from time-to time with the help of an outside view. As Dr. W. Edwards Deming said: "Understanding comes from outside… Knowledge from outside gives us a view of what we're doing, what we might do, a road to improvement, continual improvement… Far better, more trustworthy, is an outside view… It is only by that outside view that we get ahead."
Problems You Worry About
Leaders have many concerns, chief among them are sales growth, enterprise value, leadership development and succession, strategy and execution, and driving change. These are perpetual concerns because of changing circumstances, uncertainty about the problem that needs to be solved, and the facts that are needed to settle on workable solutions. To meet these challenges in the digital era, make people as much of the core of your outlook, capabilities, and leadership as technology. Invest in talent to outperform others.
