Susan Ashford holds the Michael and Susan Jandernoa Professorship in the Management and Organization at the Steven M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. Her research interests include leader effectiveness and development. There are many types of leaders such as captains of sports teams and parents of families—although not all are effective leaders. Business organizations especially need good leaders and spend more than $24 billion on leadership development every year. Despite this large amount of spending, many leaders who participate in these programs don’t gain the experience they need to make them the best possible leaders. Susan Ashford shares about how to overcome this deficit and become a better leader.
