It's more and more evident that getting on an airplane, bringing people together in a high-profile, event-based training is no longer the most effective way to approach professional management and leadership development
Sherborn, MA (PRWEB) January 21, 2008
Sustainability is the key to effective leadership development, according to Frank DuMar, CEO of LeadershipTools TM, in his newly released e-Book: The New Rules of Leadership Development. Based on over a decade of experience in leadership development, DuMar shares why the "old rules" no longer apply to 21st century leadership development and presents his New Rules that match this powerful new paradigm.
"It's more and more evident that getting on an airplane, bringing people together in a high-profile, event-based training is no longer the most effective way to approach professional management and leadership development" said DuMar. "Our experience and research shows that the most effective leadership development is an ongoing process not an event."
DuMar outlines his New Rules and describes how to build an effective ongoing leadership development program; an approach that he recommends top human capital executives use to design their leadership development programs: (1) group leaders into teams, (2) provide an e-Coach for support and accountability, (3) deliver the education on-line and on-demand, (4) link the program to company goals and objectives and (5) design the curriculum for each team's and individual's needs.
In training the managers and leaders of today and tomorrow, DuMar states, "effective results come from a more cost-effective, team-based approach that doesn't require the time commitment and travel expense of the typical training event."
