Professor of Management Practice
Raoul de Vitry d'Avaucourt Chair in Leadership Development
Narayan Pant spends much of his time working with senior leaders to improve leadership judgment. In his view, leadership marks itself at the fulcrum of decision "when leaders make choices". Consequently, supporting leaders in the moment of decision has to be a critical part of leadership development.
Today, Professor Pant spends quite a bit of his time examining how leaders present themselves in their roles. In his view, leaders "and indeed the rest of us" repeat behaviour patterns that were once successful. The ability to unlearn, examine and relearn behaviour frequently arises from mindful attention to the moment. Leaders seeking to improve their effectiveness can do so by practicing attention, which in turn can help them identify areas for improvement in their behaviour.
