Want new leaders? Start early!

Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on

Want to grow a better crop of leaders?  Start by selecting the right seeds, watering the garden, removing the weeds and in a season or two, you’ll have a bumper crop of ready-to-harvest leaders.” – Dan McCarthy

Developing the leaders within your company begins at their hire date.  To truly gain the most from your emerging leaders, start early with creating and implementing a program that recognizes the potential leaders.  Leadership expert, Dan McCarthy, calls it a “pre-leadership” program. Read his article.

McCarthy wrote, How to Develop a Leadership Preparation Program, in which he lists “the benefits of a “pre-leadership” program, or leadership preparation program, are:

1. Shorter learning curves for newly promoted managers.

2. Improved opportunities to assess high potential management candidates; which leads to better selection.

3. Better career choices- which leads to improved satisfaction and job fit.

4. Improved ability to recruit employees that are looking for leadership development opportunities.”
