Are you training your future leaders?
Each year, business leaders are challenged to develop and revise strategic plans for their organization and to think through the specific tactics to achieve goals. Often these plans for the future state of the organization include thinking about the skills needed. An organization can hire new skills, but often it is more effective (on the basis of cost and productivity) to invest in leadership training. Almost any leadership training can be enhanced and reinforced with an eMentor program which connects people based upon their current and future skills, their needs and job requirements and the personality and world view.
We all know that an organization’s ability to grow and prosper is tied to the organization’s ability to attract and retain employees who can help them to achieve their goals. Strategically, the people at the top need to be thinking about the future state of the organization, and the skills that will be needed in the future - and pushing for effective leadership training and mentoring to have the people and skills in place when needed. Mentoring programs (sometimes called eMentor programs) are one of the strongest tools in the manager’s “toolkit.”If you are in talent management, we encourage you to look beyond the tried-and-true selection variables to locate new talent and gauge leadership potential within your ranks.
