How much focus does your organisation put on matching the required Leadership to deliver the company Vision during the next 10 years?
More and more companies are investing time in developing a clear Purpose and Vision but what about a strategy to ensure you have the Leadership capability to successful deliver them for the nnext decade?
As experts in Executive Search and Leadership development, Collingwood meet companies every day who are still taking a short term view, ensuring they have strong Leadership for today. In our "INSTANT" society it is all too easy to go out and buy the Leaders you need but surely your business will be stronger if you take a proactive view and develop a Leadership development strategy throughout the organisation to identify real Talent for the future and nurture it effectively to create a decade of Leaders who already live and breathe your culture?
There are real risks if you don't take a longer term view and it will also be more expensive!
As we poured over the accomplishments of specific staff members and reviewed their passion archetypes, it became clear to Jeff that he was looking for more than just one person; he needed a team of talent who would collectively comprise the “leadership archetype” he was seeking. Thriving in 2020 and beyond will require that Jeff think of his staff as a collection of talent, who bring not only skill-based expertise and experience to the business, but also a unique combination of passions that provide the organization with the diversity of perspective so needed for future success. There is not a leader that I know worth the respect of his or her colleagues who isn’t like Jeff — worried about developing the talent today that their organizations will need tomorrow.
