Duration: 1 hour
Despite overwhelming evidence that learning from experience is the number one way that leaders develop (the “70” in the 70-20-10 model), experience-driven leader development receives considerably less attention and organizational resources compared to formal training and coaching. How can organizations rectify this imbalance to better harness the power of job experiences for leader development?
Drawing on organizational cases in the new book, Using Experience to Develop Leadership Talent, Cynthia McCauley will share strategies and tactics leadership development professionals are using to put experience at the heart of leader development.
In this session, you will learn strategies for:
- getting more employees into the right stretch experiences
- ensuring that leaders maximize their learning from each experience
- building on-the-job development into talent management systems
- influencing organizational culture in ways that enable rather than inhibit experience-driven learning
