The Leader Habit (2018) details an approach to leadership development that favors practice and habit learning over rote learning of knowledge. By looking at the ways habits are developed, and by breaking down the skills necessary for successful leadership into microbehaviors, these blinks offer a structure for becoming a better leader through short training exercises.
Martin Lanik is the CEO of Pinsight, a consultancy firm that fosters leadership development. His approach, which entails short practice sessions spread over a day, has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, Chief Learning Officer and Monster.com. The technique has been implemented in companies including AIG and CenturyLink. Lanik has a PhD from Colorado State University in industrial-organizational psychology.
