Latest Research on Strategic Leadership Development – The ‘big 5’ Findings

Organisations with high quality, highly effective strategic leaders are more likely to outperform their competitors in key metrics such as quality of products and services, employee engagement, customer satisfaction and financial performance. We have recently published a whitepaper where we share our latest research findings on strategic leadership development and revealed our big 5 findings.

1. Start with evaluation - there is a need for a rigorous and validated evaluation process before the executive development programme begins as well as during and post programme.

2. Align development to strategy using VUCA – ensuring the external marketplace challenges of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguousness are matched internally by vision, understanding, clarity and agility.

3. 70-20-10 development delivery - 70-20-10 leadership development focuses on leadership practice via on-the-job experiences and assignments (70 percent); developmental relationships including coaching, mentoring, feedback and networking (20 percent) and focused knowledge and education-based development (10 percent).

4. Personal, team and organisational (PTO) focus - the PTO methodology is a systematic results-driven three-dimensional approach to making executive development work across an organisation.

5. 70-20-10 development delivery with a PTO focus - the bringing together of 70-20-10 and PTO provides quality of delivery and content and a developmental route map with a clear focus on targeted ROI outcomes.
