exercises." He also noted that, "we try
to have meetings specifically on
leadership development so that
curriculum does not get pushed for
business reasons."
Genentech also reported a heavy
focus on live meetings supported by
webinars, group interactions and
simulations. Fausett noted that using
real-life case studies adds depth to the
programs.
Trunick explained that curriculum
is delivered in a mixed business units
fashion as this method builds trust
across the business and helps develop
teams. "We are strengthening the
culture with top performers," he said.
"Someday, they will all meet at the
boardroom."
Kukla shared that the multi-phased
program at Purdue includes classroom
work, individualized post program
development, assessments and ongoing
development activities. He stated, "We
have recently expanded the program to
include electives."
Burg commented that leadership
development curriculum is most often
delivered live at the training building in
New Jersey. In addition, his team will
partner with the field for "just in time"
customized training when a special
need arises.

The group agreed that impactful
programs are the ones that leave you
thinking and growing after the
program. Heide and Burg cited
simulations as an impactful tool. Once
a people leader completes the core
curriculum the learner gets to apply
their skills in simulations.
Heide elaborated, "Simulations are a
safe environment to apply concepts and
receive immediate feedback, others in
class benefit from watching as well."
Kukla also cited the impact of
simulations and case studies to bring a
real world aspect to the training.
Fink recalled a recent experience
where international business leaders
worked in a mixed function group with
professors from a noted business
school. "We were able to leverage the
professors along with application based
workshops to make a memorable
impact," Fink shared.
Trunick said that the emotional side
of leadership development, to him,

makes the most impact. "People learn
in a positive environment you created,
and you know that others will have
positive experiences through the
exponential impact of leadership," he
said.
Real time feedback, coupled with a
safe environment allows leaders to
develop and learn to show
vulnerability. Fausett noted, "We are
trained in a world not to show
vulnerability and be tough and
followers don't always want that in their
leaders."

Finally
Kukla noted that developing leaders
is critical for organizational longevity.
Succession planning is proactive to
avoid the reactive trap of replacement
planning.
"Succession planning increases the
availability of experienced employees,
with the skills needed to support the
mission of the organization, the goal is
to build bench strength throughout the
company," he said. I
