The Shortage of Leadership Talent is Real

Deloitte estimates that 80% of organizations lack the bench strength to support their business operations into the next decade.  Many leaders considered “high potential” struggle to navigate the challenging economy, forcing organizations to take a hard and serious look into current leadership development programs. With economic conditions improving, smart companies are ramping up development and retention initiatives to keep key leaders and high potential employees on board. To stay competitive, organizations must reassess and benchmark their leadership development practices against those in similar markets, then take aggressive steps to do whatever it takes to coach, prepare and motivate top talent.

Learning and Leadership Development Are Priority Objectives in the Executive Suite

There is direct and irrefutable evidence that links good Leadership to increased innovation and business performance. The Corporate Executive Board recently announced the #1 Critical HR Priority for 2011 is improving senior leader capabilities at managing the workforce.  Smart organizations investing in learning and leadership development clearly demonstrate superior financial performance, increased engagement, and essential market innovation compared to those that don’t make this investment.
