Delray Beach, FL, United States, 2014/03/26 - This exclusive model defines business impact for LD, establishes four levels of LD maturity, and includes a diagnostic tool that enables organizations to self-assess their current level of LD maturity - BrandonHall.com.
Brandon Hall Group today released a four-tier model that enables organizations to assess the impact of their current leadership development on the business and chart a course for business impact development that matches their unique needs.
Developed by Laci Loew, Vice President for Talent Management Practice and Principal Analyst, this model addresses the most valuable -- and least understood -- purpose of leadership development: how it can positively impact the business.
High-Performance Leadership Development: Measuring Business Impact, defines business impact and describes four levels of leadership development maturity. It offers recommendations on how to build effective leadership development solutions to increase their impact on the business. And finally, it includes a diagnostic tool that enables organizations to self-assess their current level of LD maturity.
The discussions and recommendations in this report target HR and talent leaders as well as executives and other business leaders in high-performing organizations (HPOs) and those aspiring to higher levels of organizational performance.
Loew said,“While the models, concepts and ideas presented herein may not provide all the answers to business success in every organization, they do describe leading conventions practiced at high-performing global companies and, through our rigorous, analytics-based research methodology, have been validated to have a measurable impact on the business.”
Said Mike Cooke, CEO of Brandon Hall Group: “To implement and continuously improve high- performance leadership development is not an easy task and does not take place overnight. However, institutionalizing many, if not all, of the leading practices Laci describes can begin almost immediately and the beginning of improved results recorded shortly thereafter while building toward long-term, high-performance LD impact.”
This is the latest in a series of leadership development products released by Brandon Hall Group to help organizations improve the effectiveness their leadership development programs. The research/analyst firm’s 2013 research showed that only 25% of organizations surveyed believed their LD programs were highly effective.
