  • Traditional leadership development interventions overlook the fundamental role that cognitive capability and socio-emotional maturity play in successful performance. In addition, traditional programs do not explain precisely how leadership work changes in scope as one rises through organizational levels. LBL allows us to create benchmarks of role requirements at each level so that participants have clarity about how to tailor their development plans prior to promotion.
  • There is a qualitative and measurable difference in each step up the organizational ladder in terms of work complexity and cognitive challenge. Potential leaders need to understand what will be required of them and how to develop themselves before they move up.
  • Organizations and their managerial leaders will understand what successful transition between levels looks like and how to prepare for it. Managers of participants will play a key role in creating and supporting individuals’ developmental action plans, following appropriate coaching by Requisite Development consultants.
  • These timelines emphasise the need for organizations to take a proactive long-term view of leadership development. The timings of each phase will be adapted to each set of circumstances. However, the longest phase is dedicated to experiential learning projects which will provide the most sustainable development outcomes.
