“How can we develop better leadership talent more quickly?” This question is front-of-mind for growth-oriented leaders in both corporate and government. Unfortunately, one practical approach, experience-driven development, has been under-utilized.
Organizations can avoid the risks associated with inadequate leadership, and prepare leaders for uncertain future scenarios, in two ways. The first is by sharing past experiences with each other as a source of practical lessons about leading. The second is by planning for future experiences and lessons to learn to make themselves and others ready for becoming senior leaders. This structured approach to developing oneself and others is the best guarantee that your organization’s talent pipeline will be filled and flowing.
In this 60-minute thought-provoking, interactive and experiential session, we will use a popular and internationally acclaimed tool- the Experience Explorer™ (EE) card deck — to demonstrate how experiences can be used by you and your teams to become more effective and successful as leaders.
