Last week I had the pleasure of presenting at the Ohio HR conference which had a record of over 700 attendees.
I was also fortunate or less fortunate to perform the daunting task of delivering this presentation on Friday morning which began at 7:15am. Keep in mind that:
- it was a 7:15 am session
- the conference attendees had been there for 2 days
- they probably came to the session from two nights of good times!
- this was an early bird session on Friday
- this was the final day of presentations
- it competed against sessions on FMLA and I-9 (yeah me!)
- can I stress that it was at 7:15 am
Despite the early morning there were probably around 150 people in the session if I estimate correctly. I think it was because of the Anthony Hamilton music I played. *shoulder shrug.* The topic of this was Building a Leadership Development Program from Scratch. Without further adieu here are the slides from that session. If you would like to have a downloaded version please subscribe to the blog and then contact me and I would be happy to send you the notes!
Now how do you approach and build your own Leadership and Training efforts?
The description from the program pamphlet: “Leadership is a concept that has been discussed for years. It has moved from being a simple term and ideology to active growth and building operational capability in the practices of individuals becoming leaders. Pressure to build leadership from front-line employees to the executive suite is on. However, the question remains “We need leaders but what should you think about when creating a program to develop them?
