    Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline

    Developing leaders means finding people with the skills, knowledge and personality to steer your company. Dan Tobin¿s straightforward, if sometimes plodding, guide spells out the basics of creating and managing ¿leadership development programs¿ (LDPs). These employee-training efforts are not difficult to implement, and they offer organizations huge benefits. Discovering future leaders in-house means you can nurture and train your own best people to understand your goals, values, and vision. getAbstract found Tobin¿s use of checklists and forms practical and useful, and recommends this guidebook to HR professionals at small and medium-sized firms and to all those who want to best leverage their employees¿ talents to serve their organization¿s future.

    'All-in-One' guide for Leadership Development!

    Imagine when you are not a bigger company; when you don't have facilities like GE's Crotonville! And worst of all imagine when you don't even find it feasible to build one for your company. Just don't get panic because Daniel Tobin has come up with one of his master piece, his new book, 'Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline: How to Develop the Next Generation of Leaders in Small to Mid-Sized Companies'.The author not only provided guidance for identification of company's high-potential talent and components of LDP but defined steps for mentoring, coaching & reinforcement of learning with proper evaluations of program along with LDP costing. I remember when Daniel sent me his book one and half months back, since then I am just amazed to see handful of tips for creating and sustaining a leadership pipeline. I am glad that the guidelines mentioned in this book are very practical and are not only applicable to small and mid-sized companies in third world countries like Pakistan but for sure it can be applied to any company that has vision to develop leadership successors.Readers from a general public or a corporate sector who wished to purchase this book must remember one thing that this book is not dumped with hi-fi phenomenas, modern leadership jargons or simply an elaboration of obvious ideas but only it contains an ideal sequence of validated steps and proven paths that are often ignored, mismatched or underestimated during leadership succession planning.I found this book very practical, very straight and 'All-in-One' guide for Leadership Development. Therefore, I highly recommend it for HR professionals having LDP assignments on their shoulders. So, implement it after a thorough reading and deep understanding!Regards,Muzzammil Ahmad Syed,Country Manager Pakistan,Mursadnia, Inc.
