The personal learning network for educators
That means 3 out of 4 leadership programmes don’t provide leaders with the skills they need to lead.
We all know leadership development programmes which have been a waste of money. Your staff have come back from the training and don’t do anything differently. They still won’t step out of their comfort zone.
They know all about leadership theories and styles. They’ve done all sorts of inventories and tests. They've been labelled, categorised, and come back with workbooks and handouts. Yet nothing changes. They’re still not ready to “step up”.
Guarantee your programme is different
If you’re involved in developing leaders, you can make your programme the one in four that's successful. These 4 simple steps for designing each session guarantee your future leaders will develop the behaviours you need.
It’s a tried and tested theory
Why will these 4 steps lead to guaranteed success of your leadership development sessions? Because for those of you who recognised the 4MAT learning method, you’ll know it's a process to help anyone to learn anything. It almost sounds too good to be true. It isn’t; it works because it’s based on David Kolb’s research into how adults learn effectively. We know profound learning only takes place only when all 4 steps are followed. We also know profound learning results in changes in behaviours, and that’s what you want, isn’t it?
Plan for success
Whether you’re planning to send your staff on leadership training or facilitate it yourself, be sure your programme works.
Follow the simple formula to guarantee your programme isn’t in the 75% that fails our next generation of leaders; give your leaders the skills to step up and lead the moment you need them to.
