Leadership development is about two things. First, it’s about proactively identifying the values and competencies that company leaders believe are important for success at that firm. Second, it’s about identifying which employees have the greatest potential to become leaders at that organization in alignment with those values and competencies.
A solid organization promotes those values and competencies in a variety of ways so that everyone is aware of what they are. It is important to “walk the talk,” so demonstrating those values and competencies through how leaders act every day is essential.
It is not necessary that people already excel at all of those competencies to become a leader – we help companies assess the strengths and development needs of future leaders so the company can provide targeted development opportunities, programs, and challenging work to get people from one level to another.
We have done everything from helping companies clarify and communicate about values to helping global companies with their leadership development planning and implementation.
