Focus Magazine - Fall 2016 - 22

COVERSTORY Dig Deeper Once you collect the data, you need to make it actionable. Dig for deeper meaning beyond the numbers. e quantitative measurements can indicate if your program is on track or if adjustments are needed.  You should share the success of your distinct programs - not just with the training department, but very importantly it should be shared with the business unit stakeholders that you support. ey need to know that what you are giving their leaders is relevant, being applied and is leading to better business results. Irrespective of the survey results, as training professionals, we should be checking regularly with the senior leaders we support to make sure that in their opinion we are delivering what they want and need for their leaders. Without the personal buy-in of these senior leaders to our programs, all the great survey results in the world will not make a difference in regards to the perception of whether we are creating value in leadership development for the leaders in their organization. Sustaining and measuring leadership development programs is a challenge - but it can be done to great effect. If you take the time and effort to sustain the training, keep your courses relevant, gain leadership buy-in for your programs and measure the few important data points, you'll be better served in bringing value to the leaders in your organization. ■ Thomas Hood is deputy director, field sales leadership development, for Bayer HealthCare.
