Leaders learn and acquire experience from many places, but ask successful leaders how they became successful; it's usually because they learned from other great leaders. The idea of using an organization's leaders as the keystone of a successful learning strategy might seem obvious, but few groups employ this strategy because they don't know how. It's not something that just happens - unless you're very lucky. So why wouldn't you use experienced leaders to inspire, mentor, coach, and develop other talented leaders to their full potential? Here's the journey of Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD), which created and deployed a leadership development program that relies on all its top leaders (even the CEO) to train other leaders. From BD's success of improved business results, improved communications and strengthened organizational culture, your organization, too, can learn how to build and implement this vital program.
