The article focuses on developing leadership among employees. In Roffey Park's Management Agenda 2007 survey, 70% of its senior-level respondents identified leadership as the most pressing business issue they faced. The survey shows organisations that develop leaders are twice as likely to over-perform against financial expectations. Leaders need to be responsible not only for their own development but also for enabling others to grow. The way they are developed will have a critical effect on how they motivate and engage their own staff.
