Developing Leaders from base camp to summit Prepared for by Chris Barclay, CEO & Head Coach
The pathway to power: an ongoing climb The Premise Leadership cannot be taught. It can only be modeled and developed from within. Leadership development is an ongoing process of enrolling and coaching people to courageously examine their current reality and take purposeful action toward realizing a compelling future.
Identifying climbers early The Interview Using company leadership values as a guide, a well-structured behavioral interview should identify a candidate’s propensity to exhibit those leadership values in the future. Interviews should focus on those competencies that will distinguish him or her from campers or quitters.

The transformation to leadership “…by transformation we mean that you must gain control over the patterns that govern your mind: your worldview, your beliefs about what you deserve and about what's possible. That's the zone of fundamental change, strength, and energy -- and the true meaning of courage.” -- Peter Kostenbaum

Case Study: Wrigley “Boot Camp” Background In Summer 2003, as part of a strategic leadership development program in partnership with ALTEC, Wrigley deploys a newly devised Behavioral Interviewing System for new management trainee hires, and puts successful candidates into a 10-day military style “boot camp” at ALTEC’s Yangshuo Mountain Retreat in Guangxi Province.
Case Study: Wrigley “Boot Camp” Process In addition to 6 hours each day of classroom learning, participants complete a timed 6km mountain run, help serve each other breakfast, do dishes and laundry. They face such outdoor challenges as technical climbing, caving, orienteering, night navigation and building bamboo rafts to cross the Yu Long River.
Case Study: Wrigley “Boot Camp” Some Feedback “It really let me know how to be a man who is responsible for himself.” “Empowered me to breakthrough myself” “Inspiring! I feel learned how to be the real leader.”
Case Study: Wrigley “Boot Camp” Results After one year, no candidates have turned over, and Wrigley HR has reported that their performance is “above expectations” Wrigley has used this as an internal case promoted in the company worldwide.
Motivation: forward from the future The Power of Vision Leadership development is ongoing, and part of a manager’s career plan. By enrolling young managers in defining and refining their vision of the future, a self-owned career pathway can be created. The vision serves as a powerful motivator, and structured learning opportunities serve to support the ascent to the summit.
