Duration: 1 hour
Look at successful organizations and you will likely find they are investing in leadership development and that they have systems in place to evaluate the merit and worth of those investments. Effective evaluation keeps leadership development initiatives on track and contributes to organizational learning so that leaders can remain responsive and resilient.
This new webinar from CCL shares some of our nearly four decades of experience in evaluation of how our own leadership development programs impact individuals and organizations. Changes in strategy or services can move a fledgling or experienced organization to the front of the pack, and effective leadership will help that same organization stay in the lead regardless of the changes that occur or obstacles that arise. Effective evaluation tools can help the organizations determine the quality of the impact and implementation of their leadership development initiatives.
In this session, the following outcomes are planned:
- Six key steps for designing an evaluation of leadership development impact
- Examples of evaluation design processes and tools
- Practical advice and best practices that can help with practically any evaluation project
- Emerging trends and developments in evaluation of leadership development
Who should attend?
