What is the ROI of leadership development in your organization? Organizations invest a good deal of both time and money in training, yet we find the return dismally low. If this is the case, should we bother with development activities? Jennifer Mackin is the author of Leaders Deserve Better: A Leadership Development Revolution and a leader of two consulting firms. Jennifer shares with Kevin that the principles of leadership hold, and we don’t have a problem with the content. However, we do need to change how we leverage the new learning and create a culture where folks can put their new learning into play. In addition, we need to have a people plan to connect with our strategic plan and continue the learning beyond an event.
In this episode, Jennifer shares:
- Thoughts on the leadership development problem.
- The 4 drivers of leadership development success.
- Thoughts on the use of an external coach.
Ask yourself: Do you have a people plan?
