Training and Development - it’s not just an HR function! Leadership is a complex process with multiple dimensions. Your value as a leader not only depends on your effective influence, attention to the bottom line, and reaching strategic goals; but also on how well you develop your team members. An element of leader effectiveness is developing others to their full potential. A variety of leadership theories emphasize this component. In fact, failing to develop others has been found to be one of the greatest fatal flaws of senior managers. Nearly forty percent of leaders exhibit this fatal flaw (Harvard BR).

This module (with 30 minutes for questions and answers) for senior executives that focuses on the leaders’ role in training and developing their team. We will take a look at how training, development, and mentoring fit into your role as a leader.
