Development Needs for Senior Executives
Episode #53 of the Third Turn Podcast with Kristin & Mark

In this episode of the Third Turn podcast, co-hosts Mark L. Vincent and Kristin Evenson process out loud and invite you to consider the unique development needs that develop for leaders, especially in context of Third Turn leadership. Things like navigating the inherent anxiety of our organizations and systems in times of change and future thinking; prioritizing adaptiveness in context of experience and competence; setting aside time to think in an adaptive and generative way; and on a more personal side, navigating our own shadows and blind spots, managing our own time-and-attention budget alongside the #s and budgets of the business.

Because these numbers tell a story of the high calling and lost opportunities in Third Turn leadership, change and transition--and the dearth of leadership able to step up to it:

  • For every 100 people that enter the workplace…
  • Only 14 will lead an organization at some point in their career…
  • And only 2 of those will lead the organization to what is considered “a successful transition.”

Consider this episode a call to equip and develop oneself well, with an eye toward being the kind of leader who leaves the organization better off.
