How To Design an Effective System for Developing Managers and Executives.
Dalton, Maxine A.; Hollenbeck, George P.
Effective leadership development usually requires a range of ongoing and integrated activities. This report presents a six-step model created by the Center for Creative Leadership's (CCCL) "Tools for Developing Successful Executives" program. The steps include: (1) find and use organizational support for creating a process, not an event; (2) define the program purpose and the behaviors to be developed; (3) use feedback as the baseline for executive development; (4) define and communicate the critical role of the manager; (5) write the development plan; and (6) make the program accountable. Individual sections describe each stage and contain information about the issues involved in designing a development program and numerous practical examples. One figure is included.
