Leadership Natives joined forces with Liz Wiseman (The Wiseman Group) and Hazel Jackson (Biz-group) to develop an inspirational lecture for ATD 2016 in Denver: Bridging the leadership gap with Multipliers.
Do you recognize that:
- Only 14% of companies worldwide believe they are strong at succession planning – a 86% gap
- Only 13% believe they are excellent at building global leaders – a 87% gap
- Only 7% are excellent at building Millennial Leaders – that’s a 93% gap
- We collectively increased spend by 10% in 2015 to a staggering $31 billion on Leadership programs and only 37% are satisfied with the results, that’s a gap of 64% who believe they yielded some or little value from just short of $20billion. Most programs are still only measured with smile sheets. (Bersin’s report 2016)
That’s the gap in numbers. What’s the gap in behaviors according to Bersin’s 2016 report? Leadership expectations are changing & leadership development isn’t keeping up with the business demands. We have a gap in the ability to attract, inspire and retain talent in this competitive market.
A gap in the ability to collaborate in new types of teams and structures. A gap in managing the new demographics – millennials have sharpened our focus on this new expectations of leaders, but lets be honest, no one wants to be managed by being told what to do. And a gap in getting on top of the pace of innovation and change.
In our session at the ATD we’re offering our L&D professionals attending our session to close this gap a little bit by bringing bitesize, impactful insights about accidental behaviors, the impact on others and practical tools to cope with this. “Always a step ahead of your people to inspire them?… And unintentionally slowing them down? Having great ideas for scrum and agile teamwork, and maybe for all kinds of challenges in your team… And unintentionally bringing their creative spirit to a freezing point?” Join us!
We are honored to have been invited to share at the ATD about Multipliers. On our website, we will keep you up-to-date on all developments related to our participation in ATD 2016.
