Change is happening faster than you think. Many companies don’t have the infrastructure or expertise to deal with industry changes, new technology, and ever-growing competition. And as long as there is no time machine, the one thing these anxiety-filled executives can do is to develop future leaders to manage all the complex changes coming our way.
What Executive Think About the Future Generation of Leaders
Research shows that top-level executives today are uneasy about their organizational leaders’ ability to handle unexpected challenges. According to the DDI Global Leadership Forecast 2018, fewer than half of 1,000 C-suite executives ranked their organization’s overall leadership quality as “excellent” or “very good.” Asked to name their biggest challenges, the executives’ top choice—identified by 64 percent—was “developing next-gen leaders.”
Why New Leaders Are Not Succeeding to Develop Future Leaders
Historically, the most successful leaders rise through the ranks due to their acute personal and professional skills. However, most of these leaders are not effective at employee training. They do know how to pass down their skills to the next leader in line. In fact, a recent survey conducted by Globoforce found that 93% of employees said their managers need training on how to coach them!
As a result, 30 to 70 percent of senior leaders fail in the first 18 months after their promotion. They have a difficult time adjusting to the growing responsibility and don’t know how to get a leadership mindset.
