Its effect is rarely neutral. The purposeful thought (or lack thereof) that we put into design is the difference between an experience that is easy, helpful, fun, and inspiring &ndash; or totally frustrating. <br /> <br /> In a world in which so many experiences are the same, great design is the key to creating an emotional connection that makes people crave what you do. <br /> <br /> Join author Tom Peters for a passionate exploration of what he calls &ldquo;one of the most promising untapped economic opportunities&rdquo; of our time.

Leadership training videos like Ben Zander’s Art of Possibility Video leave managers and leaders alike believing they can create something great with their people. There is an energy that is derived from this leadership training video that is so different and radiates possibility. The Art of Possibility video is truly one of a kind. Zander has been featured in stories like this one in Fast Company.

Leadership Pickles is one of those leadership training videos that extracts that which is great from any coach or manager and finds a way to give it to employees. The Pickle Philosophy that so many want to capture form Bob Farrell is one wherein leaders find that extra thing they can give to motivate their people to give the customer and clients alike something they’ll never forget. Leadership Pickles is one of those leadership training videos for the ages.

Most people hate their boss. The boss has become the equivalent of an overzealous foster parent trying to get you to do your chores but neither cares for your well being or has any connection to you whatsoever. You are simply seen as a paycheck. Is this a fair assessment? Absolutely not. Is it a common assessment? Absolutely. But when leadership training videos like Would I follow Me come along things change. The Would I Follow Me leadership training video asks that question that forces leaders to be the leader they would want to have.

But the exceptions to bad bosses are beautiful and miraculous and they all have one thing in common. There has been great care taken in the leadership training videos that have been set up in the corporation. Leadership training videos by people like Tom Peters have become a wellspring for management training to help managers be more effective leaders by caring and being the type of people employees wish to follow. To see a story of leadership featuring his ideas in training click on this article here about Tom Peters in Time Magazine.

Ken Blanchard’s Whale Done video is one of those programs that encourages employees to follow. When the thought of great bosses crosses the mind, there is a self-knowing smile. The qualities they possessed made you feel you were a part of something. Instead of feeling pressured you felt challenged. Instead of feeling you were going to battle with your boss you felt you were going into battle with your boss. What a striking difference. What is the distinction between one boss and another? Why is one revered while the other is reviled? And most importantly how do you get to be the leader or be led by someone that encapsulates all those great qualities that people follow? In one leadership training video tilted The Sid Story training video captures the bad boss who transforms into the great leader. Blanchard's leadership ideas have been documented in stories like this one in The Washington Post.

Lou Holtz Do Right programs have created great leaders. Joel Barker paradigm programs have also demonstrated great success in the workplace. But leadership training videos can’t make great leaders. Employees don’t follow great leadership videos they follow great leaders. But could there be something to the phrase great leaders are made not born? Just like anything else in life there has to be the raw quality in there, and then it has to be nurtured. Then leadership training videos can bring out some ideas in those individuals.

If people hate their bosses maybe they have a good reason to. Maybe it’s not the employee’s fault. Leadership training videos show statistics supporting the theory that the person employees would least like to see is their boss. The person who causes the greatest amount of stress in their lives is their boss. The person who is the reason for their prescription medication… is partly their boss. The Gung Ho training video seems to find the spirit of hard work that can help an organization view itself differently and thus bosses differently as well.

Companies have realized they can find leadership training videos that can help them build a better leader. And they’ve taken the steps to do so. The Practical Coach video has been an excellent addition to leadership training video. Using this program many companies have implemented leadership training videos and strategic methods to create more great leaders in their companies. If the raw resources are there why not use them? Leadership training videos have increased in need and schools for higher education in business learning have increased their enrollment over 200% over the last decade in the United States alone.

So the next time the thought of your wonderful former boss runs across your mind think about what qualities they possess. Can they be learned? Can the simple way of phrasing a deadline make all the difference in you actually becoming personally invested in the accomplishment of that goal? Can the tone your hated boss be changed to show he knows it’s asking a lot but would you be so kind as to take this on. The One Minute Manager video is one of the rare leadership training videos that have all the grace to be able to pull this off. But it takes a great team of people to follow.

Leadership training videos accentuate the leader in their values and why there can be love for a boss not hate. It’s hard to remember this when the boss you hate slaps down two boxes of files on your desk and mutters, “Monday,” think to yourself about how the goal could be explained more thoroughly and how much a difference it would make to know what the work is for and how much it would mean to the company. Don’t worry. With the growing number of leadership training videos taking root in companies everywhere, he may be using a different tone next Friday.
