Cracking The Leadership Development Programme Code

  1. CrackingThe ‘Leadership Development Programme’ Code Developing your leaders for strategic business roles
  2. John Maxwell “The single biggest way to impact an organisation is to focus on leadership development. There is almost no limit to the potential of an organisation that recruits good people, raises them up as leaders, and continually develops them.”
  3. Leadership development programmes are initiatives that businesses take to invest in their internal growth. An organisation identifies employees with strong leadership potential and teaches them skills and traits they can use in management positions. These programmes allow organisations to improve their management techniques while creating leaders at every stage of their career development. WHAT IS LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME? Read more:
  4. Simply put, leadership development programmes are how organisations train people to acquire and improve their leadership skills. This training typically comes in various forms, such as; - Coaching and mentorship - Live online - Blended learning - Classroom Learning

  6. Why do leadership development programmes fail? Developing a successful leadership development programme would be extremely difficult when leaders lack a clear vision for their team or organisation. Without vision, leaders may struggle to set goals and objectives for their team, leading to frustration and confusion among members. 1. LACK OF A CLEAR VISION OR STRATEGY Leadership programmes often fail when you don’t teach practical applications of the given training. If the training is rooted in academic models or theories, learners may be unable to apply these situations to their daily work. Programmes can also fail when you offer training that cannot apply to your business or is out of the learner’s scope of control. 2. TOO ACADEMIC- BASED When businesses fail to track and measure changes in leadership performance over time, they increase the odds that improvement initiatives won’t be taken seriously. 3. FAILURE TO MEASURE RESULTS One of the most common shortfalls of Leadership Development Programmes is that whether it’s the programme itself or the programme’s instructors—all parties aren’t clear about what success actually looks like. Often, this can result from the organisation not being clear on its vision of success. 4. UNCLEAR SUCCESS MEASURES/EXPECTATIONS
  7. Why do leadership development programmes fail? When an organisation lacks relevant resources to develop its leaders, leadership development often ends abruptly, or business leaders cannot reach their desired level of success. 5. LACK OF ADEQUATE RESOURCES Before developing leadership development programmes, business leaders must carry out due diligence and put together a tight implementation plan highlighting project milestones from start to finish. Also, they must enforce the discipline to work around this plan to ensure that focus isn’t lost at any point. 6. LACK OF A CLEAR IMPLEMENTATION PLAN One of the problems you may encounter is sending your leaders on a leadership development course that disconnects them from the organisation’s culture. In order to be effective, they are going to need to have a clear understanding of the culture of the organisation so that they can seamlessly integrate innovative strategies without alienating and discouraging their teams. 7.

  10. 1- Connect overall programme goals to high-level business goals To create efficient and smart leaders, it is essential that they have complete knowledge and understanding of the leadership goals set by the organisation. Setting defined leadership goals is the fundamental component of a successful leadership development programme. Are your leadership development programme’s goals aligned with your business’s strategic goals? It is important to review your organisation’s strategic priorities and consider what skills your leaders need to accomplish them. Also, consider what is required in order to drive your organisation’s culture. 06 01 02 03 0 4 05
  11. 2- Identify potential leaders Identifying potential leaders is not an easy task to accomplish.While focusing on the top performers might seem the right thing to do, it won’t necessarily turn out to be the right decision. When creating a leadership development programme, scouting beyond the obvious choices and exploring more possibilities is necessary. It is essential that the chosen few have the potential and will to evolve as leaders within the organisation. 06 01 02 03 0 4 05 Download this guide: Strategies for Identifying High Potentials Within the Organisation
  12. 3- Focus on Development While leadership development programmes aim to train professionals in developing leadership skills, the approach should be something other than training-centric. Creating a leadership programme where employees are encouraged to develop the skills rather than being trained is essential. Leaders are nurtured and cannot be manufactured. 06 01 02 03 0 4 05
  13. 4- Create an effective plan Making a detailed plan for creating a program that addresses your leader’s needs can help you avoid some common obstacles organisations face. Being proactive about these potential issues can help you create a more proactive programme, which can help it succeed. Also, you can outsource your leadership development programme to experts like workforce learning. Rather than relying on internal knowledge, outside sources may give you a more objective view of your organisation and identify places where you can strengthen your leadership. 06 01 02 03 04 05
  14. 5- Select the suitable modality Leadership development training comes in many forms, from one-on- one coaching to video-based e-learning.
