The author discusses why a Leaders as Teachers approach should be a part of leadership development (LD). She cites how the computer company Dell successfully adopted this approach under chief learning officer (CLO) Alejandro Reyes. She states that one reason for adopting the approach is to fill the gap that arises between strategies and execution plans. Other reasons include to develop talented people in every position, to value learning and to defy predictions by economist Thomas Malthus.
