Understanding the Leadership Development Culture
A high-performing company relies on an engaged, well-prepared, and well-trained workforce. According to an article from Entrepreneur.com, every company should invest in leadership development program for several key reasons, one of which is to create camaraderie within your company or organization.
“The advantage of training and coaching your future leaders early on is that they start to work together and build a level of comfort and trust with each other long before they’re officially in leadership roles.”
Leadership development, while most often utilized as a strategy, should be thought of more as a culture. Consistency is key to the development of strong leaders, and companies that choose to make the investment early on in their employees will find a greater likelihood of producing great leaders which leads to better productivity and a stronger overall company.
Developing the talent hidden within your company and delivering results is the basis of a solid development program.
“Training focuses on efficiency – Development focuses on effectiveness”
Investing in a leadership culture allows you to reinforce your organization’s leadership principles, build foundational business and leadership skills in your first-time and front-line managers and create leaders at all levels.
Understanding these differences between Leadership training vs Leadership development is key in making sure that the development focuses on maximizing the potential of the leaders within your organization rather than adhering to mechanical standards.
