What is it that sets apart an exceptional leadership development program? How do we inspire, empower, develop, or enable leadership at all levels of an organization?
Effective leadership is key to the success and future of any organization. Yet, knowing how to develop leaders can be elusive and challenging. Ambitious employees want opportunity for growth, but they don’t want to take a long time in getting there. Up-and-coming leaders may be nurtured, but then decide to take their skills elsewhere. The creation of a positive leadership development program can be key to working with these kinds of challenges.
In this session, you'll hear ideas about:
- Implementing cutting-edge techniques for developing leaders at every level of your organization
- How to use coaching as a leadership development tool
- How to align leadership development with strategic planning
- How to use your leadership development program to attract
and retain talent
