What can organizations learn from the military when it comes to developing talent in an agile organization? Plenty, says Brigadier General (Ret.) Bernard Banks, Ph.D.
Banks, who is the Associate Dean for Leadership Development at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and Faculty at the Thayer Leader Development Group, shared some of his insights into agile organizations—especially the military—with Chief Executive. Banks will be speaking on the subject at the annual CEO Talent Summit, held this year on Sept. 24-25, 2019 in West Point N.Y.
"Most people spend 90% of their time on tasks and 10% on leadership. Start spending 50% of your time on leadership and you will notice that others will pick up the slack on the tasks."
