I've seen firsthand how leaders are the most significant leverage point for success in many organizations, yet they often neglect their development to focus on delivering short-term results.
If Maureen is right—that leaders are the most significant leverage point for success—then we need to be spending more money and more time on our leadership development. Leadership development was one of five trends for 2023 that Maureen wrote about on Forbes late last year. But we want to get the most ROI out of any investment in ourselves, right?
WHAT MAKES A LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM SUCCESSFUL?
In a February 2023 article, Harvard Business Review's top two answers to this question were:
1) A focus on whole-person growth and
2) Providing opportunities for self-reflection and meaning-making.
What drove those top two answers stemmed from research they reported on in an earlier June 2022 article. Their research identified three components of successful leadership development:
For example, you learn something in the classroom or online and reflect on how that makes sense for you and how it may fit into your leadership. Then, you experiment with it. Through trial and error and seeking feedback from colleagues and others, you learn more about who you are as a leader and what works best to amplify your leadership effectiveness—and that leads you and your team to achieve new and amazing results.
