Do you want to develop a leadership program in your organization that has a lasting impact on all levels of leaders and your organizational culture? Do you want a program that is unique to your specific needs and culture? If so, Customized Leadership Development is the approach for you.

Research continues to indicate that generic leadership development isn’t developing leaders. According to a recent McKinsey and Company survey, only 11 % of more than 500 executives from across the globe believe their leadership development interventions achieve and sustain the desired results. According to a recent Fortune survey, only 7 % of CEOs believe their companies are building effective global leaders and just 10 % said their leadership development initiatives have a clear business impact.

We need a new and creative approach that creates meaningful change in how people lead. 

Deborah Rowland, in her article ‘Why Leadership Development isn’t developing Leaders’ in Harvard Business Review, OCTOBER 14, 2016 cited research that shows what makes leadership development work:

  • Make it experiential. We must apply what we have learned in order for us to truly embrace it.
  • Influence participants’ “being,” not just their “doing.” Leaders need to work on the quality of their inner game, or their capacity to tune into and regulate their emotional and mental states, before they can hope to develop their outer game.
  • Enroll faculty who act less as experts and more as Sherpas. [we need] facilitators who work skillfully with live group dynamics, creating psychological safety in the room for participants to take personal risks and push cultural boundaries.

Stephanie has developed 11 different customized leadership programs over the past five years with these concepts in mind. Her highly interactive and engaging programs achieve an average 25 % increase in leadership effectiveness with participants. 

Customized Leadership Development is a proven creative approach that adapts to the unique needs of each organization. Each of the Customized Leadership Development Programs that Stephanie has developed creates multiple possibilities for the organization beyond simple leadership training. Succession planning, team building, self and organizational awareness and increased employee engagement are a sample of the results of previous programs.
