Emerging Leaders update by Jim Johnson 

As you may remember, I started two Emerging Leaders groups this fall. During the last two months we’ve been studying and discussing Jeff Olson’s book, The Slight Edge. We’re wrapping that up in the next couple of weeks. And in November will kick off a study and discussion on John Maxwell’s book The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth.

Our discussions have been rich and I’ve been getting very positive feedback from the eight individuals who are going through this with me. One young lady said that she appreciated having to read a book because she normally doesn’t do that. In fact her mother was astounded that she was actually doing that. But she said she’s gained so much from going through this experience.

In January I will start another new group. It’s been a great investment of my time. Again, these meetings only last one hour once a week. In fact one of the groups meet during the lunch hour. It’s a minor investment that is having great returns. As Maxwell says, an organization gets better when the leaders get better.

I would love to hear your ideas of how you’re developing Future Leaders in your organization. Please share in the comments section. Thank you for visiting Go, Leader, Grow!
