Why do you need Leadership Development Program?

Organizations want to deliver results and execute their strategy on time, under budget while meeting quality goals. This requires high productivity and an engaged workforce. Gallup employee engagement surveys have shown that almost 50% of workforce is not engaged. The top reasons for lack of employee engagement are:

BAD LEADERSHIP

Bad leadership by the immediate boss

LACK OF CONFIDENCE

Lack of confidence in senior leadership

NO SENSE OF VISION

No sense of vision or direction provided by the leaders

The challenge to be a good leader is even harder for engineers. The irony is that the very skills that make someone a great engineer– data driven approach & technical focus, can become a handicap, when engineers take on a management role. This is because the natural technical strength of these professionals can lead to a tendency to under appreciate the significance of people skills that are necessary to become a great leader. While these professionals go through 4 years of technical education for becoming engineers, they go through only a few hours of learning, if that, for their new role as leaders or managers and get minimal coaching or guidance. This lack of guidance can result in inefficiencies for the organization, employee retention issues and projects not being executed as intended due to loss of productivity and lack of employee engagement.
