30 Years of the Lessons of Experience

On the 30th anniversary of the ground breaking book, The Lessons of Experience, Rob and the Center for Creative Leadership hosted a day-long conference to celebrate the lasting impact of this work in defining the modern field of executive development.

See Rob's interview with Mike Lombardo and his colleagues as they tell the story behind the story--how the research project came about, how the researchers discovered the central importance of the breadth and depth of challenging job assignments in shaping executive leadership, and how the key to these insights was "practical science" guided by a partnership with corporations keenly interested in cracking the code on executive development.
