Leadership remains a truly magical ingredient in organisational life that is highly prized for so many reasons. But the reality is that it doesn’t appear at will just when required and is not a permanent state of being for any individual. It is more often the case that in their greatest hour of need, organisations or teams have a leadership crisis and ‘those chosen’ individuals are not ready to adapt or change enough to make a positive difference. So many questions remain:
- How do we increase the likelihood of leadership when we most need it?
- What are the components of a robust leadership development approach?
- Where do we focus our attention if we want to foster better leadership for the next 3 – 5 years?
- Does leadership investment really pay back; surely it boils down to tangible results at the end of the day?
