Zenger Folkman Leadership Podcast Get answers to today’s toughest leadership and development problems from thought leaders Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman!

September 3, 2010  

Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman answer the following questions in this episode:


  • With the dizzying speed of change, how can you prepare employees for redundancies without inadvertently implying that the employment relationship is uncertain , unreliable and short term?

  • Is Coaching more effective if the coach is from the same industry as the coachee? (I.E. Are internal coaches better than external coaches?)

  • How can we maintain a leadership development strategy in an organization, once we have started?

  • We are facing quite a challenge in justifying the cost of doing a leadership program in our organization, in India. Being able to link it, directly, with increase in profits should have a very favorable impact on our efforts. What do you think are some of the best measures of the effectiveness of a development program?

  • Does an organization’s culture have any affect on the sustainability of a leadership development program?

  • Could you please outline some clear, practical methods for collecting ROI on the business impact of attending the Extraordinary Leader program, including the area of driving company profits.

  • In your view, what part does organizational culture and values play in increasing performance and profits; and what part does effective leadership play in fostering values in action and a high performance work culture?
