LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? ALL ORGANISATIONS NEED LEADERS: PEOPLE, WHO HAVE THE VISION, CAN IDENTIFY WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND ENERGISE AND MOTIVATE OTHERS.
Yet, many think this is confined exclusively to top executive positions. This is not true, and successful organisations not only know this but practice it too. Consequently, they have built a credible and prosperous business with strong leadership at all levels through carefully designed leadership development programmes.
So, how can you become one of these successful organisations? One that has strong leadership at all tiers, effective succession planning and talent management strategies, and the ability to retain your top talent?
It starts with the recognition, that identifying individuals with leadership potential is not as easy as it may sound. Nor is nurturing that talent!
Ask yourself this question: where are you at the moment? Do you have several mid-level managers planning to retire in the next twelve months? Do you recruit externally, or should you focus on developing your people from within? There are many benefits to promoting from within, not least internal people are ‘known’ and already know how the organisation works.
I know the challenge many organisations face is how to grow their own leaders. I also appreciate that every organisation is different, and often what is needed is a bespoke leadership development programme. Working closely with you, I would begin by identifying and understanding your particular challenges and what you actually want to achieve from an in-house leadership development programme.
“Thank you for delivering such a great suite of workshops over the last nine months. I have thoroughly enjoyed them and found the learning very useful. I am already applying many of the tools and techniques learnt along the way.”
I combine your vision, mission and values together with up-to-date thinking and best practice to deliver a creative and thought-provoking leadership development programme for your business which your people can relate to and develop behaviours and skills to increase performance and productivity.
