Without question, one of the common tasks organizations everywhere have to deal with is leadership development. Whether it's due to an aging workforce or the growing numbers of Millennials now moving their way through the workplace, there's no question that developing the next group of leaders will play a key role in an organization's growth and success in the coming years. But what measures should organizations be taking to not only create effective leadership development programs, but to support these new leaders to ensure a successful transition into these new roles in the organization? That's the focus of my conversation with Dr. Naphtali Hoff in this episode of my leadership podcast, Leadership Biz Cafe. Naphtali Hoff is an human and organizational psychologist and also President of Impactful Coaching & Consulting, where he works as an organizational consultant. He is also the author of the book “Becoming The New Boss – The New Leader's Guide To Sustained Leadership Success”, which is the focus of this episode. Over the course of our conversation, Naphtali and I discuss a number of key factors around leadership development and succeeding at leadership, including: The key areas organizations should address to help prepare new leaders for what awaits them. How organizations can create mentoring opportunities that benefit both new and experienced leaders. How to help new leaders learn to effectively delegate responsibilities to their team members. How both new and experienced leaders can “think positive and achieve” to drive their organization's vision forward. Why organizations need to move beyond learning and create “a workplace of teachers” and how to go about doing this.
