In early February, eCornell hosted an education webinar Six Best Practices to Create a Mature Leadership Development Program presented by Kim Lamoureux of Bersin & Associates. An archive of that event is available at www.ecornell.com/feb3archive, and the presentation slides can be downloaded from www.ecornell.com/feb3ppt.
According to Lamoureux,, leadership development has “risen to the top of mind” due to the stresses of the global financial environment. A well-conceived and developed leadership development program is going to help you grow and retain the best leaders possible for your organization in these trying times.
It is therefore time to consider the “maturity” of your leadership training programs, and assess where your organization stands in this model. The maturity of an organization’s leadership development program is not determined by financial resources or age of the company, but rather by several key practices used in its training programs.
In addition to improving leadership training programs, this Leadership Development Maturity Model will help you create an enterprise-wide understanding and adoption of leadership development strategies.
