Amy Melendez's curator insight, September 26, 10:23 AM

From the article:

#5: Clear and honest program rationale.

Finally, we also have to be courageous about the reason for the leadership program in the first place. If there’s a serious deficit that needs to be addressed, it’s better to be honest about it. If high performers are being put into a program to escalate promotion, then be clear about that. If the program is meant to top-grade skills for current positions, that’s fine too.

Everyone is well meaning, and this can get in the way. Too often, companies disguise, or don’t know, the real reason for the program. They worry about setting incorrect expectations. Just because a senior leader wants it doesn’t make a program meaningful. Greater transparency about why participants are selected and what the program will lead to is critical. Otherwise, there’s widespread skepticism and even frustration which foils learning every time.

Why Your Company Needs Both a CIO and a CISO

Why Your Company Needs Both a CIO and a CISO | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Information security isn't a luxury these days. It's a necessity. Companies that don't (or won't) pay security the attention it deserves risk joining a list that includes the likes of Target and Home Depot. It's time to hire a CISO and take security seriously.
Ron McIntyre's insight:

I agree with the concept of increased attention on security, I also question the need to have another C-Level position created.  This seems to discourage the collaboration that is necessary for successful growth by creating another silo.
