THE CYCLE OF LEADERSHIP provides the keys to creating companies with strong values, speed and the intelligence to sustain success, year after year. The book describes how you can build a world class “teaching” organization – one that develops leaders at all levels who, in turn, develop other leaders. This creates knowledge while simultaneously aligning your leaders around a set of shared business ideas and values.
In his previous book, THE LEADERSHIP ENGINE, Tichy argued that leaders at all levels must have a “teachable point of view” so they can develop other leaders. He now adds a critical dimension to the execution: Leaders must teach in an interactive, high-energy way that enables them to learn while they teach. The core DNA of a teaching organization is constant, two-way learning, or what he calls “virtuous teaching cycles.”
