The Leadership Pipeline
IN THIS SUMMARY
In this era, in which the demand for leadership greatly exceeds the supply, almost every major enterprise is offering extremely generous compensation packages in order to hire the best and the brightest. These desperate attempts to recruit “stars” is an indication that most internal training, mentoring, and other leadership development initiatives have failed to keep corporate leadership pipelines full and flowing. The Leadership Pipeline provides a proven model that will allow companies to assess, develop, and enable their own leadership talent from inside the organization and at every level. This model defines six critical leadership passages (turns along the pipeline), demonstrates how to assess competency and performance level at each passage, and explains how to plan leadership development so that it addresses the unique challenges inherent in each.
