Review the progress made, and repeat those steps of the process that appears to need repetition. Once the first two stages are performed in quality, in-depth way, there is a need to begin the development of the right people, in order to commence the process of creating and developing the best, right people, to lead into the future. At these meetings, the employees share their knowledge, ideas, opinions and experiences on a number of issues, in a safe and encouraging environment. How can you ever develop future leaders unless you first have a mechanism to identify the best possibilities, with the optimal potential? Know what knowledge, qualities, and degrees of understanding are needed to provide the amount of wisdom needed, in order to be able to make the best possible judgments and determinations, based on quality experiences (which provide true expertise). Everyone has a someone different learning curve, and therefore, there must be a mentoring system developed, and every necessary effort must be made to assure that the mentors are extremely qualified to assist others. Leadership training usually occurs through meetings and workshops known as ’leadership training forums’. There is another type of forum you probably have heard of or seen before, online forums.
This ultimately results in professional and personal growth. Leadership training forums provide the members with significant value for shared opinions, business education, feedback from respected peers, better decision making, new insights and new arenas for business and personal networking. Obviously, all the people you initially consider or identify, might not end up being the right ones for your group. Our more popular program, Conduct the Heart Leaders Program, is a yearlong intensive behavioral program for senior leaders. Never assume that someone will immediately understand and implement all the information you provide. While every group has its individual needs, focus and heritage, and therefore the somewhat technical aspects of their training program might vary, the five key or principal stages are the same: identify; qualify; develop; train; and review. If you want the organization to be sustainable, use a professionally developed leadership training program, and use it continuously, and on an ongoing basis.
