Scratch the surface of any successful organization and you'll likely find systems designed to evaluate how well it runs. Effective evaluations keep leadership development initiatives on track and contribute to organizational learning so that organizations remain responsive and resilient.
The session builds on CCL's nearly three decades of experience in evaluating how its own leadership development programs affect individuals, teams, organizations and their communities. New products and services or breakthrough strategies can move an organization to the front of the pack, but effective leadership will ensure that the same organization has the ability to stay in the race no matter what changes occur or crises arise. Effective evaluation tools can help organizations create leadership development initiatives that will improve their performance over the long haul and deliver a greater return on their investment in training.
This session will review:
- Basic education about evaluation techniques,
- Examples of evaluation design processes and tools,
- A flexible framework that can be adapted to virtually any evaluation project,
- Practical advice ranging from developing questions to disseminating findings.
Maximizing the Value of the Webinar
- Invite others to participate. Structure a group "lunch and learn" session and invite other colleagues to attend.
- Debrief the lessons learned. Set aside time at the end of the Webinar to discuss takeaways, and how they apply to your group or organization
- Tap into your training budget. Ask your HR group or manager to underwrite the Webinar as part of your organization's ongoing staff development effort.
