When Leaders teach, great things happen.  We welcome you to join us in this forum about Leaders as Teachers, where we will share our current examples, best practices.  Join the ongoing dialog on the Leaders As Teachers LinkedIn Group.  We also invite you to read the LAT books, available through ASTD Press (publisher) and Amazon:

Leaders as Teachers – Unlocking the Teaching Potential of your Companies Best and Brightest (2009)  in which Ed captures the BD story — a powerful benchmark showing how a CEO and team with a clear Teachable Point of View(tm) and a commitment to teach and have leaders teach at all levels both drives performance and develops a leadership pipeline for the future.

Leaders as Teachers Action Guide — Proven Approaches for Unlocking Success in Your Organization (2014) in which Ed, Lisa, and Sue provide a step by step approach for creating a leaders as teachers approach based on their own experiences and on interviews with the learning leaders at Banner Health, BD, Boeing, HP, Merck, P&G, SES, and Signature Health.
