Just In! Stop sending people to courses they don’t want or need

September 13th, 2018

What’s hot?

Employers face the most acute talent shortage since 2006 (according to ManpowerGroup’s Talent Shortage Survey).  Couple that fact with a report from the Center for Creative Leadership that 40% of leaders hired at the senior level are pushed out, fail, or quit within the first 90 days.

 

 

 

 

So what?

It’s no longer a question of simply finding leadership talent; you need to build it.

What to do?

  1. Develop the talent you already have.
  1. Empower learners through self-management – provide micro learning they can access whenever wherever they need it.
  1. Provide learning materials that offer practical “how to” help and can be used for on-the-job support.
  1. Revolutionalize micro learning to make it experiential – include practice, ongoing feedback, followup and opportunities to engage in shared learning experiences with peers.
  1. Support learning with coaching that is driven by what the learner chooses to focus on, not the coach.

People’s motivation to grow is highest when they feel a sense of autonomy over their own learning. Today’s budding leaders live in a time-crunched, high-pressure world where being taken away from the job to do training is unwelcomed.  Instead of “doing leadership development to them,” put them in the driver’s seat and make it easy and practical for them to develop their leadership skills.

Here’s the best “what to do” – see or experience it yourself.  Join us and other smart leaders NOW for a special one-time offer that gives you or your leaders instantaccess to three big months of development, coaching and consulting assistance – in micro bits of time and for a fraction of the cost.
