Tearing Muscle To Build Muscle

To build muscle, you have to tear it. If you tear muscle the wrong way, you injure it. However, if you tear it appropriately, the fibers actually become stronger!

Great leader development organizations make smart “tears” in their people daily. Doing so lies at the core of how you grow competent and principled leaders in your ranks.

How do you grow the leaders you need? How do you grow the right people so you can do what you need (short and long term)? How do you develop the right culture?

Bernie’s presentations address these questions and more. You will learn:

  • Understanding the importance of experience, feedback, education

  • Purposely fostering risk in service of engendering growth

  • Why failure and success are important

  • How to harness the power of dialogue

  • How to understand culture and shape it

  • How to artfully apply scientific principles of leader development in any organization
