Learning Organizations

Imagine a Police Culture Where People Wake Up Every Day Inspired to Go to Work

“As a leader, we are not responsible for the results. As a leader, we are responsible for the people who are responsible for the results.” ~Simon Sinek

The Five Learning Disciplines

THE CORE OF LEARNING ORGANIZATION WORK IS BASED UPON FIVE “learning disciplines”— lifelong programs of study and practice:

  1. Personal Mastery— learning to expand our personal capacity to create the results we most desire, and creating an organizational environment which encourages all its members to develop themselves toward the goals and purposes they choose.

What is Leadership?

Here is my favorite definition of strength of character I got from my friend Don Vandergriff-

“A leader that seeks out responsibility and has a fondness for responsibility as well as the making and standing by their decisions in the face of the enemy, peers and superiors.”

Adaptive Leader Program

Don Vandergriff and I have been talking about our new book, Adaptive Leadership Handbook: Innovative Ways to Teach and Develop Your People. We now have developed an Adaptive Leader Program, that is based on the book we think will greatly benefit your organization.

Don’t Fear Failure; Instead Make Failure Your Classroom

Faulure

“Failure = Normal = Good. ("Reward excellent failure. Punish mediocre success." "Fail faster. Succeed sooner." "Fail. Forward. Fast.") ~Tom Peters

Adaptability is Key in Handling Crisis Situations…Be In Command and Out Of Control

“…the first thing I told our staff is that we would be in command and out of control,” Van Riper says echoing the words of management guru Kevin Kelly. “By that, I mean that the overall guidance and the intent were provided by me and the senior leadership, but the forces in the field wouldn’t depend on intricate orders coming from the top. They were to use their own initiative and be innovative as they went forward….” Paul Van Riper, US Marine commander.
