Research has established that internal leadership development is crucial to success.
What kind of leadership programme is right for your business?
For many years, organisations have spent time and resources on improving the leadership capabilities of their managers and on nurturing new leaders. It has been reported that US companies spend almost $14 billion annually on leadership development, and this emphasizes the importance of leadership development in organisations.
When a group of over 500 executives from all over the world were asked to rank their top three human-capital priorities, leadership development was included as both a current and a future priority. Almost two-thirds of the respondents identified leadership development as their number-one concern.
Leadership development is often something that gets axed as businesses look for ways to save money. However, overlooking the value of cultivating your own in-house talent can be a fatal mistake. Leadership programs help ease the chain of succession, make employees feel more connected to the business, and can transfer good ideas from one section of your company to the whole organization.
Before you start a leadership development program, you have to make sure your business has a clear vision and stated goals.
Ask yourself: What do we want our future leaders to accomplish? There are no universal values that apply to everyone. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ leadership model. The goals needed in a turnaround situation are different from the ones needed in a high-growth organization.
The goals and vision you create should be believable, or you risk compromising employee trust. If your business is still reeling from the recession, putting employees through leadership workshops can help re-motivate them, boost camaraderie, and create new challenges that have the potential to stimulate creativity.

Given that leadership involves a complexity of attitudes, behaviours and competencies- all of which take time to develop- the contemporary view considers leadership to be more like a trade or a craft than a profession. Our intervention reflects this reality as it examines the relationships between an individual (the leader) and various groups of people, all of whom are capable of ongoing development.
