A recent article in the Wall Street Journal discussed the urgency of leadership training in today's economy and cited research stating that approximately half of the companies surveyed planned to increase their leadership development budgets this year. Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline, a new book by Daniel Tobin, is the perfect resource for those companies.
Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline provides a blueprint for leadership development that addresses the unique challenges of small to mid-sized companies. It helps identify high-potential talent, define a company's key leadership competencies, build an affordable and effective leadership development program, harness the power of mentoring and coaching, evaluate program effectiveness, and calculate what it will cost in budgetary and staff resources.
Renowned business author Jim Kouzes says, "Tobin has done a masterful job of compiling all the tools, plans, processes, and programs that every small and medium-sized business needs to develop its future talent. And, it's extremely easy to read and easy to use. It's an extraordinary achievement, and you don't need to look any further than Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline for all the expert advice and counsel you need to build the leadership muscle in your organization."
Every company should plan for its leadership future. Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline helps address the looming leadership talent crisis by creating a leadership development program that even small companies can afford to do now!
