A robust leadership development strategy is based on:
Formal training and educational events have the capacity to accelerate learning around specific issues, and coaching and mentoring can do much to guide and support personal development. But the development of leadership comes from exposure to the trials and tribulations, the uncertainties and adversities of organisational life. This is not an argument for “trial-by-fire”, but an appeal for development to be grounded in challenge and action.
Help organisations design a game plan for leadership development. At one level this is about identifying priorities and establishing where there is the greatest potential to make a difference. Sometimes it is about the design of formal events and programmes, usually it is about helping build a culture in which line managers understand and are equipped in their roles to develop others.
Branded solutions. While some organisations wait for SAP and the implementation of fully integrated Learning Management Solutions….and wait, other organisations access our content and technology to build customised stand alone leadership resource. Our on line directories can be adapted quickly and cost effectively to incorporate your organisation’s leadership framework and branding.
Coaching. If your organisation is reviewing its coaching provision, contact us. We have access to a network of over 30 of the best coaches, in the UK, as well as overseas. We don’t operate any financial structure with our coaching network. We simply recommend coaches who have impressed their clients and us with their professionalism, skill and wisdom.
