Reaching The Summit - Professional Development Market Trend



Top companies have leadership practices worth replicating. A recent survey on leadership development provide some interesting information.

The Hay Group study identified the top best practices for leadership development.

  • Ensuring that the company and its senior management make leadership development a top priority

  • Providing training and coaching to help intact leadership teams, as well as the individual leaders work together more effectively and

  • External leadership development programs for mid-level managers.

The study also stated focusing on identifying and managing the talents of high potential candidates will rise to the top of the agenda. Organizations that are able to identify, develop and promote their leaders from within will find themselves better positioned than their peers to win the war for leaders—and to safeguard their organizational futures. The top companies are already focused on this.

Those companies which are not prepared will be forced to rely on external recruitment—which is usually much more expensive and less dependable than internal promotion.”
