Build Leadership Development Programmes That Create Lasting Value

Most leadership programmes fail when judged on whether they achieve lasting impact because what is covered is often forgotten soon after the programme ends.

Available tomorrow, Building Leadership Development Programmes by L&D expert Nigel Paine is a practical guide to how leadership development should work. It challenges the widely accepted notion that leadership development cannot be measured and exemplifies how to design programmes in line with organizational needs that deliver lasting and measurable impact.

Building Leadership Development Programmes offers unique insights into the process of building effective leadership development, looking at a range of approaches from almost zero cost options to high end investment that actually works. It features case studies and interviews with world authorities on leadership and talent development to help identify the right measures to ensure impact and adopt the right methodologies, blowing apart the idea that expensive training courses are always required.

Advance praise for the book comes from Elliott Masie, CEO and President of The Masie Centre, who says ‘This book is well researched, covers the right ground, gives some fascinating examples of great programs from all over the world and extracts the learning from all of this’. Similarly, Donald H Taylor, Chair of the Learning and Performance Institute, has said ‘This book should be required reading for everyone in leadership development’. Dr Annie McKee, Senior Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, also has endorsed the book: ‘Nigel Paine has a unique perspective on what makes leadership development effective and it will help anyone interested or involved in this field’.
