How to Establish a Future Leaders Program in Your Office
Leadership training shouldn't be a one-and-done situation. To be more effective, you'll want to develop a future leaders program that you can revisit as you bring new people into your organization. It also helps you avoid reverting to old habits and getting back into a situation you can't control. Here are three basic steps to future-proofing your organization.
1. Hire a Coach
To jump start the process, hire a professional leadership coach. This person will come into your organization and assess your skills and competencies. Then, they'll help you improve those skills by offering constructive feedback and exercises that stretch your abilities as you strengthen those skills.
2. Implement What You've Learned
One big mistake organizations make is to bring in a coach and then forget everything they were taught as soon as the coach leaves. In order to see success, you must take what you've learned and apply it to your work every day. Just like how professional athletes practice every day, you must also practice what you've learned.
3. Pass On the Knowledge
Your company won't stay the same forever. As you bring new people into your organization, you can share the things your coach taught you with them. Periodically, you may want to bring the coach back in, especially during times of major change. Sometimes, a refocusing is necessary to get everyone back on the same page and working toward the same goal.
