With this unprecedented productivity, the outcome is a leadership team of 100% A-players. Meanwhile your competition is consumed getting daily operations done and ends up producing competent leaders who never get any better.

To gain this formidable advantage, you can’t sporadically shoe-horn in random acts of leadership development or rely on customary performance management practices. And you’re unlikely to find superior leadership development best practices among your industry brethren.
