In order to be a good leader, you must lead by example. You can't just talk the talk, you have to walk the walk.

If you want your team to follow your direction, it's important to not only tell them, but show them how to be an effective leader. You have to roll up your sleeves and dive in before you can convince others to take the leap with you.

When implementing leadership development programs, the CEO and senior leadership team must be actively involved in the process. If they show that they're interested, their teams will follow suit.


Leadership DevelopmentA recent study conducted by Hewitt Associates, found that companies with CEOs who take their leadership development responsibilities beyond succession planning and talent reviews, see the best results. Through involvement in the process, such as mentorship programs and strategic one-on-one meetings throughout the year, higher success rates in terms of leadership quality and depth are achieved.

The more active the CEO is in developing leadership talent, the more successful the company is at developing leaders.

“Amongst the Top Companies For Leaders, 100% of the Top 20 Companies’ CEOs are actively involved in developing leadership talent.” (Source:  Hewitt Associates)
