Vertical Leadership: Developing the Next Level of Leaders

Learning Objective: Examine methods for helping employees grow and developing new leaders

Change and development can be difficult for some people. For example, patients with heart disease who do not change their diet and exercise habits are more likely to live a shorter, more difficult life. We see the same pattern repeat itself with smart, ambitious managers who go to leadership development programs. These managers gather in a room, a trainer teaches them new tools and techniques for becoming a more effective leader, and yet they ignore what was taught. The participants commit to making changes, but upon returning to work, they follow the same habits as before. What’s the reason behind this? The good news is that there is a way to move forward and up, helping organizations to grow and focus on their leadership programs.

At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

a. Understand and define what “vertical development in leadership” is.
b. Focus more on employee development and less on content.
c. Make the development and the work inseparable.
d. Create strong developmental networks at work.
e. Make leadership development a process, not an event.
