Organisations have a huge role to play in developing leaders but not all organisations do this well. In this episode we discuss what support leaders need, how organisations identify future leaders and what leadership development programmes need to consider:

  • 05:22  – talk about leadership early
  • 10:28 – organisational mindset shift
  • 14:30 – floundering out of the funnel
  • 17:31 – closing the development gap
  • 23:54 – creating a coaching culture
  • 29:09 – How to... influence leadership development

As always, we share our top takeaways including the benefits of a coaching approach to leadership development, personalising development for individuals and challenging your own expectations of new leaders.
