Leadership Development Plan As generations retire or ascend the rungs of the leadership ladder, organizations face common challenges when developing leaders. Let's explore how organizations and individuals alike can write a leadership development plan that works. 1. Communicate Your Vision At the core of every great organization is a deeply embedded culture which garners the ability of employees, managers, and executives to grow with the company, and eventually lead. According to Forbes, executive leadership can multiply its power and become culturally embedded when it creates other leaders throughout the ranks of an organization. Having a clear vision is the first step to sustaining a positive organizational culture. Conveying the company's vision isn’t just stating “what” it is, but living out the purpose or the “why,” and personifying the organization’s core values of integrity, knowledge, and loyalty day in and day out. An organization that can attract leaders who understand its mission and core values beyond the surface or bottom line can better identify and recruit the pieces needed for a sustainable leadership pipeline. When beginning to create your leadership development plan, ensure that your organization’s vision is at the forefront. 2. Set Organizational Goals Your goals should reflect both the vision of your organization as well as the leadership team. Ask yourself, what does my ideal leadership team look like? How do I get there? What sort of timeline needs to be set so I can effectively and efficiently grow my team?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
