DIY on leadership growth doesn't cut it.

Too many organizations are taking a “do it yourself” approach to leadership development, which usually begins and ends with giving leaders access to a generic self-study resources. But what leaders really want is a personalized experience and the opportunity to learn from internal and external mentors and their fellow-leaders.

6 Leadership Megatrends

Digital Reshapes the Workforce

Digitally advanced organizations and leaders are already outperforming their less technologically savvy peers, who risk being left behind, permanently.

Data’s Power Extends Beyond the Numbers

Data and analytics have heavy influence on business’ human side: inclusivity, agility, and fairness.

Culture Looms Crucial

Leadership strategies will fail without solid cultural cornerstones—clearly grasped and enlivened purpose, peer coaching, experimentation, psychological safety, and fully incorporated, diverse gender and generational views.

DIY Is DOA

Leaders who stand (and learn) alone —lacking access to or eschewing coaching from peers and mentors, and failing to adopt a collective, team-centric view of leadership— won’t thrive in the workplace.

The Potential Pool Swells to a Lake

Organizations taking a broad view of potential—expanding their reach to activate and accelerate leadership talent—prove more financially successful, feature stronger top leaders, and employ more women at every leader level.

HR Navigates a Challenging Road Ahead

HR’s reputation as an Anticipator has taken a hit along with its declining rates of analytics success. Also, HR’s own digital readiness is lacking.
