Reshaping Leadership Development

Leadership priorities will take new shape in 2007, according to a new study by consulting firm BlessingWhite.

Their findings:

  • It’s no longer enough to be capable. Senior executives have to build an authentic bond with their employees, customers and other stakeholders, which is admittedly a daunting challenge for most leaders.
  • Leadership increasingly requires an essential balance between business competence and personal connection.
  • Employee engagement will demand the attention of senior management as never before.

Leaders will focus on the following issues in 2007, according to the forecast:

  • Executive Self-Development
  • Correcting Cultural Corruption
  • Re-emerging Focus on Retention
  • Driving Productivity Through Engagement
  • Connecting Individual Contribution to Strategy
  • Inspiring All Generations
  • Developing Leaders for Short — and Long-Term — Needs
