Leadership development programs are a great way to help the existing and future leaders build and improve their abilities to inspire and motivate their teams to achieve the desired business results.

However, with the tsunami of learning solutions and tools available in the market, it can get challenging to choose the right leadership development program that specifically caters to your business problems. Here are the things to consider before you decide on a learning program for your organisation.

Choosing the right leadership development program

This article will talk about the top leadership challenges and how you can solve them with the right leadership development program.

Improving productivity and team output

A diverse team can become a high performing team when the capabilities of each individual are amplified. A great leader can use their intelligence to multiply the genius of the teammates and leverage their strengths to build a high performing team.

Based on the acclaimed Wall Street Journal best-seller (Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter) from Liz Wiseman at The Wiseman Group, the Multipliers program explores why some leaders drain capability and intelligence from their teams whilst others amplify talent and produce better results.

Leading through uncertainty

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us the need to be prepared to deal with high levels of uncertainty. In the past few months, leaders across the globe were pressure tested and faced with unpredictable and uncertain circumstances, of which they had no prior experience. Tackling unprecedented situations and leading through certainty have emerged as one of the most vital skills leaders of the future will need to have. The best way to prepare leaders for leading through uncertainty is to place them in a hyper-realistic virtual environment where they can safely practise the critical skills required to lead through uncertainty.

Our Virtual Reality leadership development solutions allow leaders to develop and build skills such as crisis communication, problem-solving, quick decision-making without the risk of failure in a high-stakes environment. It also provides applicable insights and practical skills to navigate critical moments – before, during and after a crisis strikes. The VR environment provides an immersive and engaging experience that leaves a powerful impact on participants.

Successfully navigating change

We all know that change is the only constant. But change can also be hard. One of the reasons why most change initiatives fail is that the issues and challenges organisations face today are more complex than ever before. A second and more fundamental reason is that leaders in most organisations do not use a high-involvement change strategy to lower resistance and generate buy-in to change.

To navigate change successfully, leaders need to address the stages of concern and respond with strategies to increase involvement and influence at each step of the change process.

Resolving conflicts within teams

When multiple people are working within a team, differences in opinions and conflicts are bound to happen. As a leader, you can’t ensure that all your teammates always get along. A smart leader acknowledges the diversity within the team and views the differing opinions as opportunities to grow rather than as obstacles. However, it can be tricky to handle the conflict. The leaders should have strong communication and mediation skills to resolve the dispute effectively.

Crucial Conversations helps leaders handle tough conversations by fostering open dialogue, especially when the stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong.

Improving collaboration

No matter how much we all agree that collaboration is critical for a team’s success, our default behaviour is working in silos. It is important that leaders bridge silos and support effective, cross-functional interaction among and between teams. A team that is collaborative and can communicate effectively and efficiently is a high performing team.

Self-leadership

A great leader builds and nurtures a strong team and leads them to success. But even the best of leaders can get derailed themselves. It is important for leaders and individuals to continuously strive to be more proactive and take ownership of the job at hand.

Self Leadership teaches individuals the mindset and skillset they need to become empowered, proactive self-leaders who take control of their own success and are committed to getting business results.
