Four Benefits of Collaborative Learning and Leadership Development

Blog | Author: Kevin Grossman | Source: HCI | Published: July 15, 2014

The ability to learn on the job, much less be identified and developed for a future leadership position, can be difficult for employees, regardless of classification. Every company claims it plans for the future, but the reality is that the mindshare required – the domain and business expertise and the leadership that drives it – usually slips away with the best intentions of having the learning and development as well as the succession plan in place.
