Just In! Be one of the Elite 7% Whose Leadership Development Efforts Pay-Off

January 8th, 2020







What’s Hot?

Leadership Development – a global industry estimated to be worth more than $50 billion—is delivering disappointing results*.

So What?

According to a Fortune survey, only 7 percent of CEOs believe their companies are building effective global leaders, and just 10 percent said that their leadership-development initiatives have a clear business impact.

What to do?

McKinsey & Company makes four recommendations for providing leadership development that translates to the bottom line, one of which is Design for the Transfer of Learning.  We concur and recommend:

  1. Immediate practice (whether in the classroom or on-line learning).
  2. Fast-paced modules that can be integrated with participants’ busy work schedules.
  3. On-the-job assignments focused on sharpening specific skills required for corporate success.
  4. Regular, real-live professional mentoring/coaching to ensure behaviors are transferred on-the-job.
  5. On-going stretch assignments that build on skill, transform leaders and create a bottom-line payoff.
  6. Senior leaders’ participation in the development process – to reinforce and model new behaviors.
  7. Cohorts of engaged/committed learners who connect, support and help develop one another.
