Leadership Development: Integrating young leaders

Posted on Mon, Aug, 12, 2013

Find me on:

Today we have another great blog post to share with our readers. The Leadership Freak has written a compelling post titled Looking Down on Young Leaders. There is a lot to digest in this piece, but essentially The Leadership Freak (a.k.a. Dan Rockwell) discusses how to transform an organization by integrating young leaders with older leaders. 

He offers tips for young leaders such as: 

  • "Ask questions before challenging ideas.
  • Stand up to those who look down on you by delivering great results. Action talks…
  • Expect to prove yourself. You aren’t being picked on."

The Leadership Freak also offers tips for maximizing young leaders. Our favorite tip?

  • "They don't know what they don't know. Teach rather than scoff."

Hmmm....makes us think about mentoring....
