Over the next 5 to 10 years, companies will be faced with retiring baby boomer leadership talent and will need to develop the next generation of leaders. Many large companies have substantial leadership development programs in place, but what about small to mid-sized companies facing the same talent crisis but without the resources or programs to replace their key leaders? Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline provides a blueprint for leadership development precisely for these smaller companies. It presents a menu of options to identify high-potential talent, define key leadership competencies in your company, provide easy-to-implement steps to build a leadership development program, harness the power of mentoring and coaching, evaluate program effectiveness, and calculate what it will cost.
