Judging the Results

Leaders can definitely become more effective through feedback and training. My partner, Howard Morgan, and I have published a before-and-after study, "Leadership Is a Contact Sport."

The research includes input from over 86,000 respondents representing eight major companies (with leaders from around the world) that clearly documents how leaders can become more effective - not as judged by themselves, but as judged by their direct reports and co-workers. I have taught seminars for hundreds of Admirals and Generals and am incredibly impressed by the quality of leaders that come from our military academies.
