In my book, Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline: How to Develop the Next Generation of Leaders, I present an effective model for putting together a leadership development program within an organization. While there are many models for leadership development in the marketplace, this is a model I developed almost 20 years ago from my own experience and the experiences of many other companies that I have researched for my books and others with which I consulted, and it is a proven model.
In this series of blogs, I will present the essence of this model. You will find more detail in my book and in some of the articles on my website.
This first part discusses how to identify candidates for your leadership development program, i.e., those employees who are believed to have high potential for future leadership roles within your organization. To learn more about this, please click on the “Articles” tab at the top of this page and then on my article “Competencies and Indicators of High Potential.”
I hope you find them of value to you as you strive to develop your own organization’s next generation of leaders. As always, I welcome your reactions and feedback — I am always on the lookout for new ideas.
