Is Your Leadership Training on Track Part 1

 

Kirkpatrick Quick Tip Vol. 2: #7

Leadership initiatives are among the most popular training topics. When properly executed they can maximize all other initiatives and be a true force-multiplier.

Unfortunately, many leadership initiatives only yield a fraction of the potential benefits due to a lack of strategic focus. Failure is likely if any of the following are absent:

  • High-level outcomes with measurable criteria for success
  • Competencies based on performance and business needs
  • Required drivers that create a follow-up framework of support and accountability

We typically see at least two of these items missing from the training plans we review. The connection of the program to the highest-level goals of the organization and a solid system of tracking progress towards those goals through the initiative are seldom the foundation for multimillion-dollar leadership initiatives that may span multiple years.

Take an honest look at your leadership initiatives and ask yourself these questions:

  • Are our competencies measurable and directly related to mission accomplishment?
  • Is our training focused on preparing participants to perform specific actions and behaviors on the job?
  • Do we challenge and refute statements like, “It’s too difficult to measure soft skills?”

This quick tip series over the coming weeks will help you to create a clear focus for your leadership initiative, or any training program, for that matter.

Next week we will discuss starting with the end in mind.
