At one point in our careers we all have been part of executive development. Some good, some could have been executed better.
I often see mistakes and/or steps missing in executive development implementation. So before jumping in to the deep end of the pool, there are four elements that should be concerned:
The objectives. What is it you’re looking to achieve?
How will success be measured. Are you getting, better, worst or staying the same?
What is the value to the team, leadership, and organization?
Development plan customized to your needs. Once these have been agreed to, be certain there is a development plan customized to your needs.
When done properly there will be successful buy-in and sustainability.
Keep it this simple. Focus on 1-2 development areas.
