Leadership is critical for success in all organisations – and developing leaders at all levels is an increasing challenge. Research shows that intensive, continuous learning is now a key characteristic of high performing leaders and leadership teams. They need to learn at least as fast as the changes in their environment if they are to enable their organisations to survive and succeed.
GPSL’s approach to leadership development recognises the need to connect generic leadership theory to the specific demands of a leadership role; and that these demands are constantly changing. So effective leadership development requires the continuous evolution of leaders’ capabilities and their understanding of both themselves and the world around them. It is a dynamic process made even more complex because what counts in most cases is the collective capability and performance of a leadership team, rather than just individual competences. Leadership requires collective development rather than focusing on the “hero leader.”
Effective leadership development:
Identifying leaders’ developmental needs...
Some of the most common situations, that trigger developmental needs, include:
GPSL provides a highly flexible portfolio of leadership development resources, ranging from training courses aimed at building core skills of leadership & management, to leadership and talent development strategy and one-to-one development. We also offer customised learning processes that integrate a wide range of learning processes, including face to face sessions, coaching, action learning, webinars and on-line business simulations.
We recognise that many leaders are time constrained and we can offer individualised, focused tuition and coaching target on the leadership needs that will have maximum business impact.
