Leadership Development
It's never been more important!
The leadership gap in corporate America and around the world will only grow as baby boomers retire,
companies merge, and less seasoned leaders and managers move in to fill the void. ASTD's award-winning
leadership development practices (included in the Excellence in Practice series) and other case studies explain
techniques organizations are using to prepare their leaders for the future and to demonstrate corporate
support of their key players.
The 2002 ASTD State of the Industry Report, which identifies trends in training and performance, states that
senior managers are facing increased pressure to demonstrate shareholder value and increased pressure to
create "just-in-time" products and services. In fact, leadership issues have become so vital, that the last two
years the March issues of T+D have focused on this topic. Fast Company, May 2002, focuses on leadership
and includes 25 tips for leaders from a recent Fast Company event. This Leadership Development Hot Topic
provides ideas on leadership development topics such as developing successors from within the company,
how to best prepare leaders for their role, and virtual leadership. It concludes with product reviews and other
resources. Look for the links to full text copies of articles provided with certain reading list entries.
