You can develop someone by giving them new skills, habits and disciplines. Or you develop somone by giving them new insights and responsibilities. I tend to work first by giving people more awareness into who they are, increase their capacity to lead (aka take responsibility) and THEN give them how-to-skills. This top down approach, called Conscious Use of Self, is a thought-leadership method to organizational success. Today Dr. Michael Broom and I discuss real world applicability and why we adopt it’s tenants in our own lives.
