Recently I had the pleasure of conducting an Experiential Learning training program for a Marketing company with a fresh outlook. (Training Story)
The founder of this company who is still very young strongly believes in promoting from within.
In fact his growth model is based on the premise that his managers would intentionally mentor and develop their team members as future managers.
They are benchmarked and rewarded based on the number of leaders they develop.
This results in huge growth; growth for the team members who qualify to lead new teams and develop new branches, growth for the managers who are promoted to overlook entire regions, and of course exponential revenue growth for the company.
