In the current scenario, the leadership development industry is in a state of upheaval. The number of companies offering courses to impart the hard and soft skills required of corporate managers has soared in recent years. And yet organisations that collectively spend billions of dollars annually to train current and future executives are growing frustrated with the results. That said, enterprises of all sorts realise that to survive in today’s volatile, complex, and ambiguous environment, they need leadership skills and organisational capabilities different from those that helped them succeed in the past. Furthermore, there is a growing recognition that leadership development should not be restricted to the few who are in or close to the C-suite.
Companies are seeking to transfer the communicative, interpretive, affective, and perceptual skills to employees needed to facilitate coherent, proactive collaboration. However, most executive leadership development programs are designed to focus on discipline-based skill sets, such as strategy development and financial analysis. Furthermore, organisations invest in executive development for their own long-term good, but individuals participate in order to enhance their skills and advance their careers, not necessarily remaining with the employers who’ve paid for their training. Even so, few executives seem to take what they learn in training and apply it to their jobs.
