Hugely compelling, and concise, McKinsey article here on 'Why leadership-development programs fail'
We've all seen this happen, most people now know it happens, yet huge amounts of money are still spent on development programs that have no context, are decoupled from real work, ignore the entrenched mindsets of participants, and fail to measure results.
Looks like far too many leadership development programs are still implemented because someone is just wanting to tick a box to say they've done something?
We agree with everything the McKinsey article says and you'll be pleased to know we've done something about this withTakeON!. All of the things McKinsey say cause a development program to fail, we've addressed in TakeON! Management Matters. We're leading the way to help create better leaders and organisations who can truly generate better results.
