Read an Excerpt
From Coaching & Development Your competitive edge.
An organization's R&D research and development sharpens technical excellence and sustains competitive advantage. Similarly, an organization's C&D coaching and development sharpens and sustains the competitive advantage of human capital. Both R&D and C&D are integral to leveraging an organization's strategies and core competencies. Neglect of either type of development ultimately leads to mediocrity or failure.
"Our people are our most important asset" is not a trite slogan; it is a fundamental truth. People make your organization, and people who are world-class learners make your organization great. Year after year, the organizations that make the greatest innovations do so because they consistently invest in R&D. Only by also investing in coaching will you and your organization be able to develop the people who serve your customers, create your products, and manage your systems.
As a leader on the front line of C&D, you can help translate the rhetoric of "people are our most important asset" into real investment in people's growth.
