The Chief of Leadership Development:
Preparing Today’s Leaders for Tomorrow’s Challenges
Leaders of organizations currently face unprecedented challenges and disruption. Although pandemics and other current upheavals are exceptional events, it is not expected that our post-pandemic future will be smooth sailing. Leaders at all levels will continue to face a future of unknown difficulties and challenges.
These unknowns will stretch leaders’ capabilities, test their abilities to focus on what is most important and strain their resolve to step up to the novel issues and concerns of the day. Organizations need adept executives at the top, who know how to develop capable leaders at all levels with the right skills and perspectives to steer their companies through the inevitable rough waters. Preparing today’s leaders for tomorrow’s challenges is a leadership investment imperative.
Among all the responsibilities held by corporate executives, there is one role that cannot be overlooked nor overemphasized. It is the responsibility to build depth in leadership bench strength and cultivate leadership capacity throughout the organization. The Chief of Leadership Development role is shared by all executives.
