Learning
" We have found more engaging and supportive
leaders have really helped us in our retention efforts, "
says Soehren. Research from Towers Watson's 2014
Global Workforce Study agrees: The top driver of
workforce engagement and enablement is leadership.
" Leadership development is the top priority of CHROs
and CEOs, " says Ed Trolley, senior vice president of
consulting and advisory services for learning provider
NIIT. " Learning is addressing this priority by building
leadership and executive development curricula that
utilize externally developed and delivered content
Three Learning Approaches For Leadership
David Letts, vice president of Raytheon Professional
Services, advises that organizations pinpoint critical
leadership behaviors that help to achieve business
goals. Once traits are identified, companies will
be better equipped to provide high-performing
executives with the skills and expertise to execute
change.
Letts recommends three learning approaches for
leadership:
1. Performance analytics can help reveal previously
unseen patterns, trends, and relationships
in organizational data. By delivering real
information, this will decrease the time to
performance gains.
2. Performance improvement helps organizations
achieve speed, quality, cost reduction, and
increased customer satisfaction in the delivery of
products and services. This leads to sought-after
competitive advantage.
3. Performance leadership provides advanced skills
that help catapult collaboration to the next
level, sharpen critical thinking skills, and define
visionary business models and strategies.
FAST FACT:
According to Brandon Hall Group's 2014 Learning
and Development Benchmarking Study, 48 percent of
organizations aligned learning and business priorities,
and more than 70 percent of that group were able to
improve company revenue.
and internally built custom content. "
And leaders are needed. According to Randstad
Sourceright's 2015 Talent Trends Survey, the top
category of workers that organizations seek in order
to succeed in the next five years is leaders, reports 44
percent of respondents. So even though these types
of initiatives can be more costly than other types of
training, the results are worthwhile and necessary.
John Laverdure, product manager at learning
services provider The Training Associates, says that
if organizations are improving leaders from the top,
the impact is often widespread throughout all levels
of employees. " In a corporate landscape that includes
CEOs like John Legere, Jeff Bezos, and Larry Page,
CHROs are right to provide their leaders with the
insight, skill refinement, and competitive advantage
that leadership development can offer, " he explains.
Organizations can leverage residential programs
offered by universities and companies specialized in
executive leadership. Trolley advises organizations
align their leadership development with content that
is highly relevant and connected to the business.
" Our learning programs help ensure our high
potentials and leaders understand the business, the
competition, our culture, and value systems, " explains
Comcast's Soehren. " This positions them to be great
leaders within our environment. "
More and more organizations are realizing the
importance of aligning learning programs to business
strategies in order to achieve results. According to
Brandon Hall Group's 2014 Learning and Development
Benchmarking Study, 48 percent of organizations
aligned learning and business priorities, and more
than 70 percent of that group were able to improve
company revenue.
