Leadership Development Programs: Should You Be Using Them?

Wednesday, April 14, 2010
This event has ended. Click Enter Event to view the archive.
Leadership Development Programs are effective at (1) increasing the caliber of the workforce, (2) enhancing efficiency in the organization's education and development activities, (3) reducing turnover and related expenses, and (4) focusing organizational attention on specific strategic priorities. Amid rapidly changing technologies, faster cycles of innovation, and hyper-competitive markets, why do some companies consistently outperform their competitors? Strong leadership is the differentiator. Leaders play a key role in creating and sustaining business success. Likewise, high potential employees (HIPO's) are the emerging leaders in your organization and need to be identified and nurtured.

Learn how leading organizations are using new insights and tools to help develop and sustain their leaders in order to tackle the tough challenges of leading change under pressure, building effective teams, and developing leadership throughout the organization.

Once certified, your staff will be required to maintain their PHR, SPHR or GPHR certification by participating in HR-related professional development activities over a three-year period. These HR-related professional development activities assures that certified HR staff members are staying current on best practices in the field and can be relied upon to align with your organizational and department-level goals.

By integrating HR certification into your HR leadership development program your organization will benefit by


·         Ensuring professional development activities are in alignment with organization-level goals resulting in an increased return on investment

This session is not about how to be a great trainer, or assign metrics, or how to design e-learning, or even how to get more buns in seats. It is about what your organization needs to do to ensure that people learn and use that learning to achieve business results - ROI.  There are two major considerations – training factors and organizational factors. Combined, they have the greatest overall impact on how learning contributes to business success.  We will review the critical considerations to accomplish both and share two powerful “best practices” case studies. 

Training factors require a purposeful framework for management and leadership development that provides continuous learning, reinforcement, and application. Unlike many interventions that piece together disparate pieces of various vendor solutions, an effective framework considers the “missing links” between learning experiences and job application. Some would describe this as creating a fine tapestry versus a poorly constructed patchwork quilt. The key question for you is: “Do you have a quilt or fine tapestry?”

The organizational factors are the “5As”:

1. Alignment

2. Anticipation

3. Alliance

4. Application

5. Accountability

This is the time, more than ever, to re-examine your training function and make all of your learning interventions (classes, simulations, e-learning, coaching, internships, etc.) more efficient and effective.  By applying diligent attention to the effective integration of organizational and training factors, you can immediately identify areas for improvement that will help you achieve your business goals.

Join us to learn:

·         The keys to creating a comprehensive leadership development framework, using a multi-vendor approach.

·         How to integrate tools that assist in the transfer of learning experiences to job performance.

·         How the 5As will impact your results and visibility within your organization.

·         How true ROI can be realized by considering both training and organizational factors.


This webinar has been designed for:

·         CLOs and Human Resource Directors/Executives

·         Leadership Development Directors

·         Organizational Development Directors

·         Executive sponsors and strategic leaders responsible for leadership bench strength

·         Anyone interested in increasing leadership training & development ROI

Extraordinary times call for extraordinary leadership—and, therefore, leadership development. Yet believers in development are finding their advocacy falling on ears understandably deafened by the economic crisis.

Ironically, this is a unique time to develop leadership throughout your organization. Think about the opportunities...

  • Individuals' views of the world and perceptions of themselves are shaken, therefore unfrozen - and may be more open to positive change than ever before.
  • As we emerge from the recession, the war for top talent will be engaged at an even more fevered pitch; investment enhances satisfaction and retention.
  • Your company's investment in leadership can be an accelerator of recovery and growth.

How do we make the case for leadership development in this environment? During this session, we will explore several of CCL's development methodologies, practices, and research to help fellow believers craft their case for this critical investment.

What Will Participants Learn:

Participants in this webinar will learn:

  • Making the case for leadership development
  • The components of effective development
  • The causes and consequences of derailment
  • The conditions for learning and change
