More about Professional Development for Leaders and Management

Leadership in the Modern World

The principal goal of any effective leadership development course is to create self efficacy. As simple as it may sound, the most critical aspect of an individual's ability to lead is commonly boiled down to whether or not they believe they can. Leaders must believe in their capability to reach objectives. This is, of course, not all that is involved in leadership development. A strong leader must be confident, have a vision for the future, build strong relationships, inspire, negotiate and be prepared to make the tough decisions among many other things. Training programs in leadership development will help you build the confidence and self awareness to motivate teams and drive business success.

The 360 Degree Feedback : individual assessmentsFind your path with a course in leadership development

Many leadership development programs include an all-encompassing assessment of individual leadership capacities, highlighting strengths and areas for improvement. The principal goal of this type of feedback is to provide participants with a plan to guide their development, often referred to as an "individual roadmap". The 360-degree feedback can be a valuable first step for achieving leadership development goals, if for no other reason than they highlight different performance perspectives. Search among leadership development courses and check if a 360-degree feedback is included in the training solution or as part of pre-course work. As always, if you're not sure submit an information request and find out more directly from the training provider!

Action-Based Learning

Action learning describes an innovative approach to learning for the business environment. It proposes moving away from conventional learning and focusing on creating an environment that encourages sharing experiences and asking questions. Many leadership development training solutions utilize this approach, often in a manner that attempts to mimic the attendee's work environment. Analyzing case studies, participants are given the opportunity to take (or explain the steps they would take) given the specific circumstances, and then assess the actions taken in a group setting. The key to action learning is asking great questsions, ones that properly evaluate the problem and desired outcome through thoughtful reflection.

Leadership Development vs. Leader Development 

Oraganizations and companies often discuss leadership development in terms of leader development. Leader development is, in reality, only one aspect of leadership development, and concerns the expansion and enhancment of an individual's core abilities to effective fulfill their roles and responsibilities. Broken down, it is generally describe as three intrapersonal capabilities, or competencies related to the "self". These are self-awareness, self-motivation, and self-regulation. Leadership development, by comparison, deals with relationship building and enhancing a company's social resources. When serching for courses in leadership development it is important to take note of these differences as leader development, while none-the-less describing a crucial skill set, must be grounded in a capacity for developing intrapersonal capabilities. It may be a good investment to search for longer programs in this subject and devote time to training solutions that are sure to link these two skills, intrapersonal capabilites and interpersonal competence.

Executive Coaching

Many programs in leadership development involve components of, or can be best described as executive coaching. Coaches aim to create circumstances or formulate lines of questioning that help participants to reach professional goals. This is often a highly individualized, company specific learning solution and requires that coaches have a strong understanding of the nature and realities of the client's work. Search for training providers in your area of expertise and consider this more personalized approach to learning.
