Drive Performance with a Leadership Development Plan

Accessing support from HR professionals with experience in developing strong leaders can drastically improve business outcomes.

Developing a leadership development plan for your business

Driving leadership behaviours amongst your people managers is imperative when striving for a high-performance culture. Your people managers are the drivers of culture, productivity and performance so it is important that you are investing in their development and driving them to step out of their managerial position, into a leadership role. Whilst often used interchangeably, there are key differences between a manager and a leader. Managers are typically task driven, looking at the smooth running of daily operations, where leaders are pivotal in creating a vision and pushing their team to achieve their full potential helping the organisation achieve its goals. Our HR Partners assist businesses in the development of structured leadership training and development plans that lay the foundation for success by identifying talent and upskilling managers within a business.

Effective leadership encourages a culture of continuous learning and development, ensuring innovation and adaptability within teams. A well-structured leadership development plan will serve as a framework for identifying leadership strengths and areas for improvement, allowing for targeted training and coaching interventions. As leaders progress within a business, their shared understanding of the company’s vision and values improves and will flow through to their decision-making and the strategic alignment of their team.

FAQs

Questions?

We have answers.

What leadership abilities can a leadership development plan enhance?

A personal leadership development plan will focus on the specific development needs of the individual. The common traits of a great leader can vary from the ability to provide feedback, effective communication skills, coaching abilities, decision making and problem solving. A leadership development plan can focus on developing one or all of these skills.

What technical skills make good leaders?

A good leader should be equally focused on business success and employee success. They should know the key performance indicators that develop both a team while aligning with business objectives.

Is leadership development an ongoing process?

Yes – leadership skills are like a muscle that need to be trained to gain strength. Unlike an inbuilt personality trait, the key traits of a leader can be taught and with practice enhanced. It can and should be an ongoing process providing leaders with as many opportunities to demonstrate and practise their skills.

Can you become an effective leader through online training?

Yes, our HR experts regularly deliver training virtually. When utilised well, video technology can cater to a variety of learning styles with the ability to utilise breakout rooms and whiteboard sessions. While delivering training takes a conscious effort to implement well, it can be well worth the rewards ensuring consistency of delivery and the ability to record and review sessions for future reference.

How does a business create a leadership development strategy?

A leadership development program should be specific to your organisation and what leadership skills are important to you. This can differ depending on your business lifecycle stage and the experience of your leaders. Once you identify the skills most important to you, you can undertake a skills assessment to tailor a specific program to your managers. If you are struggling with developing a leadership development plan, seeking professional help from HR professionals can help facilitate the right training to keep your team on track.
