How to Build and Maintain an Effective Leadership Program

OnDemand Webinar (95 minutes)

While many organizations have leadership development programs, only 7 percent describe their programs as "best in class", according to Harvard Business Publishing research.This statistic makes it clear that many current leadership development programs may ultimately be failing both the leaders who participate in them and their organizations. Also, one out of every two individuals who fills a position of leadership fails - failure being defined as a lack of goal accomplishment (Source: Hogan & Hogan). Creating a world-class leadership development program starts with equipping leaders with the specific skills, tools and behaviors they will need to confidently lead others and drive the performance of their organization. This topic will demonstrate that a systematic and enduring effort to develop current and future leaders is a source of competitive advantage that can be brought to life only if the executive leadership of the organization sees it as an integral part of their responsibility.
