Duration: 1 hour
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary leadership—and, therefore, leadership development. Yet believers in development are finding their advocacy falling on ears understandably deafened by the economic crisis.
Ironically, this is a unique time to develop leadership throughout your organization. Think about the opportunities…
- Individuals’ views of the world and perceptions of themselves are shaken, therefore unfrozen – and may be more open to positive change than ever before.
- As we emerge from the recession, the war for top talent will be engaged at an even more fevered pitch; investment enhances satisfaction and retention.
- Your company’s investment in leadership can be an accelerator of recovery and growth.
How do we make the case for leadership development in this environment? During this session, we will explore several of CCL’s development methodologies, practices, and philosophies to help fellow believers craft their case for this critical investment.
Participants in this webinar will review:
- the case for leadership development
- the components of effective development
- the causes and consequences of derailment
- the conditions for learning and change
