Journey to Global Leadership Development
The quest to build up a distributed leadership capability (monitoring and developing the leadership competencies of executives) at all levels of the organization.
When executives talk about talent, they usually mean their company's emerging or established leaders: highly-trained people with MBAs or an equivalent level of streets smarts, and a track record of achieving business results. But this understanding of talent is both misleading and incomplete. It implies that there is a single kind of brilliant person who is capable of slotting into any context and handling any assignment, when the truth is that companies need a broad, rich variety of people with complementary talents, not just those with "leadership potential."
