So, today is my first post in support of the Internet Marketing Course. I appreciate everyone’s patience with my slow start this year.
For background, Leadership is a Choice is the working laboratory for the development of my book and business founded to develop world class leadership for any organization.
Leadership is a Choice hangs out at that intersection of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and Behavioral Psychology and examines the evolutionary forces that not only shape our behaviors, but specifically that evolved leadership skills. This region of study is typically referred to as Evolutionary Leadership Theory or ELT for short.
I’ll start this series of posts with a short primer on ELT to be followed by a some case studies of how ELT predicts much of the chronic failure of leadership we see in government and business today, as well as how you can take advantage of ELT to master leadership in any situation. After that, I will spend some time discussing specifically how ELT can be used to help women succeed as leaders. It’s interesting to note that study after study shows unequivocally that both men and women prefer the unique and special leadership characteristics that women bring to the table – yet studies also indicate that women and men both prefer men as leaders over women by a wide margin. Only a few women have managed to overcome this obstacle – as evidenced by their under presentation in nearly all organizations. I’ll explain how you can do the same.
Unlike most other “theories of leadership”, everything I will present is based on true scientific studies of human behavior. Scientific meaning repeatable blind testing by a variety of scientists. Most of the information you won’t see anywhere else.
Do know that much of the information here will carry some controversy. I won’t be writing about how things should be, but rather how they are and how to maximize your world as a result.
