1. Promotion without development
People can get placed in higher positions without actually doing anything different. This gives them the misconception that they are in a newer leadership role.
2. Measuring leadership incorrectly
If standards aren’t set for leaders, you are second-guessing if you are fitting your role correctly.
3. Lack of ongoing development
If a unit as a whole isn’t developing, you aren’t showing any flexibility in your leadership skills.
4. Leaders hold back future leaders
Sometimes it is other people within the company that are too micromanaging or unbearable to let younger leaders just let go and take charge.
5. No support from the top
If people aren’t fostering a supportive, developmental environment for leadership, it won’t expand.
