The COVID-19 pandemic has created the perfect stage for business leaders to demonstrate their capabilities as they drive their organizations through the global crisis. However, over the past decade, there have been increasing evidence describing the difficulties of leading an organization. And now, with the worldwide crisis in the mix, practical leadership skills are one key criterion to determine the market-defined needs and devise innovative responses for them. For this reason, leadership development has become an unavoidable factor in training existing and promising leaders to surmount the difficulties.
Earlier, leadership development was only restricted to the upper echelons of an organization. But as economies, technologies, and organizations themselves evolve and become more decentralized, leadership development has proven to be invaluable at every level. Thus, organizations have introduced programs that help employees at every level in developing skills that are not only aligned to the end goals of the organizations but also in the context of personal development. To that end, organizations are abandoning a narrower focus on a particular set of formalized tools for developing leadership potential. Instead, they are embracing a more wide-ranging approach, in which an individual uses tools and methods of their choosing.
Technology is playing a central role in the innovation of leadership development programs and modules. More content is increasingly being delivered on smart devices, making it available to participants everywhere. Along the same lines, the introduction of games and simulations in the learning process are increasing employee engagement and improving their participation in the leadership development program.
At this juncture, a wide variety of leadership development consulting companies are entering the industry with a set of advanced and integrated offerings.
