Leadership development is a shared responsibility. Organization should put great emphasis on selecting people who are highly motivated to pursue self-development. However, this does not absolve the teacher of responsibility. If people fail to develop, the blame lies primarily on the teacher or leader for not enabling, encouraging, and inspiring the development of his/her staff.
People development cannot be left to chance or happenstance. And it cannot be the responsibility of anyone other than the leader or manager who is closest to the and directly responsible for the people who need development.
