The problem with Leadership Development
One of the critical issues that HR can impact businesses is by building the leadership pipeline and developing them to take on further roles within the organization.
However, very often HR groups fail to effectively partner with business leaders to make this a reality.
What are the reasons?
First and foremost, the way HR is structured ensures that it approaches the critical issue in a functional silo mode. Very often Leadership Development is seen as "only" a learning issue and handed over to the training department.
However, to actually make it a success, assessing leaders should be handled by recruitment, development in the classroom by training, and business HR should help translate that learning into the job.
HR also needs to monitor the kind of assignments these future leaders are getting by the business and whether senior leader is actively mentoring them to make the transition from functional to business leadership.
