Leadership development has always been considered critical for organizations, yet Brandon Hall Group’s latest research finds that fewer than half of companies believe their leadership development programs are effective. Developing core capabilities earlier in the leadership life cycle can help address some of the biggest challenges companies face like poor succession planning and a weak leadership pipeline.
Development of critical leadership skills can no longer be reserved for executives and top leadership. Companies need to focus on managers and other front-line leaders who have the most exposure to the business and represent the next generation of executives.
Join David Wentworth, Principal Learning Analyst for Brandon Hall Group, and Marci Paino, Global Learning & Talent Development Executive at Western Digital, as they look at how companies can reimagine their leadership development strategies to focus on core capabilities to create the organization’s future leaders.
