How leaders develop
According to leadership research, individuals develop primarily through challenging work experiences. A general assumption regarding leader development is that the more challenging an experience is for individuals, the more developmental value that experience offers to individuals. However, do you think challenging experiences can actually hinder development? In other words, do you think too much challenge is bad for development? Provide a specific example and explain your reasoning. Feel free to draw on the real life leader examples that were mentioned in the lecture notes.
