The need for strong leaders has never been so critical; studies suggest a direct relationship between great leadership and an organization’s bottom line. Organizations are, thus, often very focused on equipping their leaders with skills and capabilities necessary to lead in a highly volatile business environment. Yet, our findings reveal that a significant number of leaders across the globe are either marginally prepared or not prepared at all to take on the business challenges of the next few years, both globally as well on a regional basis. So how can an organization build a holistic and multipronged approach to support their business strategy, as well as an individual’s development needs? What are organizations doing? How do they measure success?
Strategic Leadership Development, the latest leadership research conducted from a joint partnership with Right Management and The Conference Board, provides a view of current global practices in leadership development and an in-depth analysis of different regional leadership development approaches. This report helps organizations assess and execute their leadership development initiatives strategically.
