Meteorologists describe the eye of a tropical storm as a place of light winds and clear skies, surrounded by a ring of towering thunderstorms.

The India Way: How India's Top Leaders are Revolutionizing Management
June 30, 2010

Description | Recording (YouTube)

American and Indian business leaders preside over demanding worlds. Both bring a vision of where they want to take their enterprise, both are called on to make timely decisions, and both use much the same skill set. But at the same time, American and Indian executives have evolved distinct approaches to their positions—critical leadership distinctions that, in India’s case, have helped the nation’s businesses thrive. As India’s ICICI Bank chief executive K. V. Kamath summed up, “Time and again it has been proved that the Western model of doing business would not be a success here.” [Read more]

These gaps emerge despite enormous funds invested in leadership training ($12 billion in 2007 according to Industry Report). Why are top management teams slow to use proven training protocols? Why do some executive leaders seem to fear their successors becoming effective leaders themselves? [Read more]

Leadership Development in the US: Best-Practice Principles & Patterns
May 26, 2010

Description | Recording (YouTube)

Bringing groups together is a central and unrelenting task of leadership. CEOs must nudge their executives to rise above divisional turf battles, mayors try to cope with gangs in conflict, and leaders of many countries face the realities of sectarian violence.
