Developing Leaders Of The Future
Many leaders are so focused on putting out fires, staying on top of tasks and reacting to change that often they do not have the time or the ability to work on or focus on improving their leadership abilities let alone their abilities to lead change.
It’s the catch 22 where leaders know they would benefit from increased skill building but they feel pulled between being proactive in investing in time up front to being proactive and more agile with taking time away from daily demands.
Research proves that for the time and money invested in leadership and team skill building the organization benefits from increased productivity, loyalty and innovation. Solutions for improving leadership skills require repetition and that repetition of learning can include in person programs on leadership skill building, online courses and virtual coaching skills.
To support leaders who want to become leaders of the future, Cheryl Cran and her team offers solutions such as keynotes, training, one-on-one coaching, in person and online mentoring, and train the trainer programs where leaders in the organization learn from and participate with our experts to become licensed to teach the content provided by an outside expert.
33% of any executive's time is spent responding to crises or problems.
73% of executives say they do not have uninterrupted time during the day.
About 60% of the average CEO's time each day is spent in meetings.
Every CEO and leader I talk to say the same thing that there are not enough hours in the day. There is no question that the demands on a leaders time are more than in the past. This too however is a catch 22 as long as the focus on developing leaders is not a priority it never really gets the attention needed AND the time invested in developing leaders always nets a higher yield in performance, innovation and productivity.
A common question about investing in ongoing leadership development and succession planning is ‘what is the return on investment’? Although it is difficult to measure the intangibles of people development it can be measured by establishing pre-development baselines and then post development improvements. The measures can be graphed as well as gathered anecdotally and tracked by the individuals participating in the development opportunities. Typically peer reviews and customer care improvement ratings indicate growth and increased results are great ways of measuring ROI. The cost of employee training and development should not be thought of as an expense, it should be thought of as an investment.
Many companies run lean operations and having people away for more than a day at a time can cause stress on other team members and a backlog of work. However companies that build in leadership development as a work priority find that people will happily attend development opportunities with a focus on learning ideas and strategies that can be implemented for job improvement right away.
