Development at the Top

Development at the top: Who really cares?, shows that the majority of top team leaders are not putting enough effort into their own development, let alone into that of their teams, which is bad not only for them but also for their organisations.

The evidence, when compared with known good practice, suggests that a significant number of boards could unlock much greater talent from their existing teams by focusing more on their individual and collective development.

The survey, conducted by four of the UK’s most respected research, coaching and leadership development organisations (Ashridge, Career Innovation, Clutterbuck Associates and The Talent Foundation) found that around a third of top teams rarely or never discuss their personal or their team development, and for most others it is an annual formality.
