“Organizations around the world are failing on one key metric of success: leadership development.”

The article outlines the problem as: “Corporate leadership development programs aren’t working. Less than a quarter of executives at the organizations that have them think they’re effective.” People are made to be brilliant. However, it bemuses me that organisations in private, public and third sectors still struggle to realise and develop the potential in their most resource intense asset – people. Perhaps it’s because leadership development is often only measured qualitatively…perhaps it’s because it’s easier not to do it? A fear may be ‘what’s the cost?’…what’s the cost of not developing your leadership?

If you recognise that leadership is key to unlocking your organisation’s performance in 2018 then maybe a navigator can help you with that journey. Here’s some of my thinking on what a brilliant leadership programme can cover: http://yournavigator.co.uk/a-brilliant-leadership-programme/
