REALITIES AND TRENDS
35. • The bottom line: Identify potential leaders and actively develop their skills
• For today’s digital leaders, the most difficult question to answer is how to
successfully identify and develop high-potential employees – the future leaders
who are able to thrive in more demanding roles. Companies that successfully
unlock this potential in its leaders gain a competitive edge that very few have.
• Leadership and its most effective characteristics are changing. Today’s millennials
place less value on visible (19%), well-networked (17%) and technically skilled
(17%) leaders. Instead, they define true leaders as: strategic thinkers (39%),
inspirational (37%), personable (34%) and visionary (31%). (Source: Deloitte,
• To successfully lead in the new world of work, the Deloitte 2015 Global Human
Capital Trends Report explains that “organisations must understand that
leadership development is not a short-term problem and begin investing in
programmes that not only provide online and classroom learning opportunities,
but also build a leadership culture that inspires employees to become active
contributors to the overall success of a company.”
REALITIES AND TRENDS
37. • Leadership Development goes far beyond management
• Modern Leadership Development is very highly blended
• Modern Leadership Development includes coaches,
assessments, and a wide range of mentoring strategies.
• Modern Leadership Development represents an
investment in the company's legacy.
• Modern Leadership Development must be globalized, and
focus on collaboration and team leadership.
CHANGES IN LEADERSHIP
41. • Building a global leadership pipeline requires a continuous focus on
leadership at all levels. The leadership gap is wider than ever. In 2015, we
must reinvest in the assessment and development of leaders to drive
engagement, retention, and performance.
• Development of the global leadership pipeline remains one of the most
important issues in business. Eighty-five percent of business and HR
leaders rate this as an urgent or very important problem (the number one
rated challenge in Deloitte’s 2014 Human Capital Trends research), and
less than 15 percent of organizations believe that their leadership pipeline
• While many large organizations have leadership programs, our research
shows tremendous gaps. At the top of the corporate pyramid, fewer than
50 percent of all CXOs feel that they are receiving any development to
help them to move into top executive positions and, at the bottom of the
pyramid, fewer than 10 percent of organizations have programs focused
on developing Millennials to lead.
GLOBAL LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
42. • Despite the talk about leadership as a CEO-level strategy, many companies are not
investing enough in this area. Companies at Level 4 Maturity spend 50-75% more
on leadership development than their peers, and they see three to four times
higher levels of engagement and performance from such programs.
• Yet 50% of all organizations have little or no leadership development at all and
52% of those with programs rate them “weak.” The understanding and level of
investment is inconsistent.
• Succession management as a discipline is weak. The latest High-Impact Succession
Management research shows that only 32% of organizations have a “steady
supply” of leaders at the top levels, and only 18% hold their leaders accountable
to identify and develop successors on a regular basis.
• If companies want to build a leadership pipeline, executives should hold their
teams accountable for regular and continuous focus on bringing new people along
on the journey.
• Leadership solutions in the market remain fragmented, forcing companies to build
their own custom solutions.
44. • Focus on developing a simple leadership framework and rigorously assess
leaders at all levels. Without a clear and consistent “model” for leadership,
people are often promoted based on their technical skills—and that does not
create a sustainable leadership and management culture.
• Hold leaders accountable for more than just performance—they are responsible
for employee engagement, employee development, and developing their own
• Make sure that the leadership development team is well-funded, operates
globally, and is led by a senior HR professional. High-impact companies spend
three to four times the amount on novices in this area. Development of a
strategic program takes experience—these programs should include formal
training, developmental assignments, special projects, assessments, and a never-
ending investment by leaders themselves. Such programs demand senior-level
support and senior leaders to administer.
• Bring disparate leadership programs together. – INTEGRATION.
• Look at new tools and programs for employee engagement, culture, and brand as
part of the leadership program. – INNOVATION.
45. • The emergence of online learning programs for leadership has not moved
the market. This means not just offering online learning to young
managers, but taking the time to bring them to classroom programs, hire
experts, and custom-build programs at all levels.
• The High-Impact HR research shows that, when HR focuses on
management and leadership, it drives almost five times the impact of a
focus on HR operations and employee support alone. Remember that,
every week, people are promoted from individual contributor to
supervisor and leader, and then they are taking on an awesome and
• Make management and leadership a core focus of your company’s
strategy; over time, it will become an institutionalized strategy and set of
values for all levels.
• HR leaders should reinvest in leadership and remind themselves that,
without great leaders, possibly no company can succeed.
