A leadership development initiative cannot be successful unless it clearly targets a specific business goal. When all is said and done, if the initiative does not positively impact the business, there is really no reason to do it. For this reason, I strongly encourage clients to be very clear about what they are trying to accomplish before implementing any single leadership development program. The starting point should be a business analysis as all leadership development efforts should be grounded in business needs.
