In recent years, the proponents for leaders to create leaders are emerging fairly strongly. Is this a realistic idea in a competitive environment like today? If yes, how do we do it?
This was one of the potential focus areas that Dr Raymond Madden, CEO, Asian Institute of Finance (AIF), discussed during his session on ‘How Leaders Create More Leaders’ at the Razak School of Government (RSOG), on 14 Dec 2017.
Dr Madden gave some perspective to the different schools of thought on leadership and also shared his thoughts with the audience on how to create good leaders. He said to create more capable leaders of the future, we must create a conducive environment that offers open communication, mentoring and coaching within our culture. The challenge to growing leaders is not imparting knowledge or skills, but to challenge people to move beyond their comfort zone.
