Spot Treatment for Leaders: Assess and Develop for Impact


Peter Drucker once said, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” We all know his wise words apply to every facet of business including leader development. When Cigna decided to expand the way they looked at leader development in 2013, they used an objective, scientific approach to glean key insights about how to design customized, meaningful development plans for key leaders for continued growth and retention. With key support from the top of the organization, the team at Cigna has honed the approach and implementation of their high potential leader development programs while expanding their strategic role at the top of the house.
