The Leadership Gap Open Workshop

When you’re making alterations to your house it’s the work your builders do that matters, not the training they’ve had.

How do you rate the quality of leadership in your organisation? A recent study found only 48% of leaders and an even lower 28% of HR people rate their organisation’s leadership quality as high, and that gap in perception is growing. If nothing else, it shows they can’t be looking at the same data in the same way. So how do you rate the quality of leadership in your organisation?

Given that most executives want delivery above development – and how much they currently need to get done – it’s surprising how little the delivery of leadership is measured compared to the effort that goes into trying to evaluate leadership development.

After all, when you’re making alterations to your house it’s the work your builders do that matters, not the training they’ve had (let alone the workshop they just attended on the different kinds of builder or the nature of buildership!).

‘What gets measured gets done’ feels truer now than ever (and we’ve been working on leadership delivery for 20 years) so we’re curious about what looks like a widespread gap in data.

  • How do you know that leadership is happening in your organisation?
  • Are you clear what leadership needs to deliver?

… and what it actually delivers?

  • How do you monitor the user experience of leadership (L-UXTM)?

… and what leadership is doing simply to get stuff done?

  • Whose job is it to know?

If you’re an executive or internal HR/learning professional who thinks more could be done in your organisation to assure the delivery of leadership, book your place by registering here.

If you’re keen but unable to attend, do get in touch with alison@ideasunlimited.com so we know to keep you informed of any further dates or other options.

Meanwhile we’ll be doing both a review of the academic research and a survey of practice in client organisations (we may be in touch to ask about yours), findings from which we’ll share at the workshop.
