Leadership Excellence Essentials;Feb2009, Vol. 26 Issue 2, p2
The author talks about ways to improve an organization's leadership development (LD) plan. He states that such plan for global organizations involves the periodic training of C-suite executives and line managers in their roles and duties. He thinks that come organizations have focused more on expensive new hires than on their loyal and functional staff. He recommends that organizations must redefine what a leader is, start a low-cost but disciplined development program, and center on a principle, model, guide, or plan.
