Jeff Oskin's curator insight, March 26, 11:51 AM

"Yet CEOs must keep raising their game—and having their thinking usefully challenged—for the good of their organizations." Often overlooked once they reach the top, CEOs still need support too. A mentor is invaluable at any level--needed to push, question, and support a mentee in ways that foster growth.

Why leadership-development programs fail | McKinsey & Company

Why leadership-development programs fail | McKinsey & Company | Achieving Better Results by Developing Better Leaders and Employees | Scoop.it

We’ve talked with hundreds of chief executives about the struggle of creating global leadership development programs, observing both successful initiatives and ones that run into the sand. In the process, we’ve identified four of the most common mistakes:

 

 - Overlooking context

 - Decoupling reflection from real work

 - Underestimating mind-sets

 - Failing to measure results

 

Sidestepping these common mistakes can help companies develop stronger and more capable leaders, save time and money, and boost morale.
