Roger Dooley wrote an article for Forbes titled Tom Peters: The Best Way To Decide Who Gets Promoted, based on his interview with the famous author.

« according to author and management expert Tom Peters, there’s one measure of leadership potential that is most important… The candidate who had created the most positive change in the skills and abilities of their subordinates would get the promotion. »

« Performance metrics can lead you astray »

« Peters summarizes, “The measure of a leader is how did the people who work for her or him grow, and particularly how did they grow after they left?” »

« Peters says his favorite definition of a manager/leader’s role comes from director Robert Altman… “The role of the director is to create a space where the actors and actresses can be more than they have ever been before, more than they have ever dreamed of being.” »


Tom Peters is the author of many books including The Excellence Dividend.
