Leadership Development

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a Leader”

Recommendations for Optimizing the Value of LDP and Other Developmental Experiences:

• Identify clear development goals and share them with trusted others who will hold you accountable to your plans.
• Raise management awareness of your need for support and feedback.
• Share your experiences and plans with colleagues who have participated in the same development programme and can reinforce new behaviours and learning.
• Actively look for feedback on your progress.
• Make it clear to others that you are open to developmental opportunities.
• Manage your time carefully on your return to work to allow time for reflection and planning.
• Be realistic. Establishing new behaviours takes time.
Leadership is the one central and most important element of successful management teams. The difference that good leadership can make to an organization - often reflects starkly not only in company performance but also in team morale. One of the biggest challenges leaders face though is in answering the question - What do we do to deliver value?

Participants accomplished key learning objectives.

The overwhelming majority of participants said they achieved the learning objectives established for each of the six leadership competencies addressed in LDP to a great extent or to a very great extent. This means the programme is equipping participants with key behaviours and insights that can drive meaningful results back on the job and can help them better handle the tensions and ever-shifting dynamics of leading in the middle zone. They are better prepared to:
Bridge the gap between senior management and the front line to grow alignment, build commitment, and turn strategy into action.
Collaborate across the organisation to gain critical perspectives, solve complicated problems, create buy-in, and manage politics.
Effectively manage complexity to take wise and productive action amidst rapidly changing conditions.
Leverage the experience gained from multiple life roles to increase their leadership effectiveness at work.
Build resiliency to effectively manage stress, uncertainty, and setbacks.
