Overview

WHEN THE FIRST EDITION OF Linkage Inc.'s Best Practices in Leadership Development Handbook was published in 1999, it immediately became a popular resource for anyone charged with leading or executing leadership development initiatives.

The second edition of the bestselling handbook has been updated to build on the previous edition with a synopsis of the latest changes in the field of leadership development. This includes new benchmark case studies from the world's foremost companies; a wealth of proven guidelines, tools, and models; and a presentation of the latest theories on leadership.

This volume also puts the emphasis on "signature experiences"—those initiatives that create a unique and memorable impact on individuals, teams, and eventually the organization. Filled with real-life examples from industry leaders such as Bank of America, Dell, Macy's, and McKesson, these signature experiences show how it is possible to create positive learning and behavioral change in any organization.

The second edition of Linkage Inc.'s Best Practices in Leadership Development Handbook outlines a six-phase approach to leadership development, including new information on vital topics such as:

  • Innovations in leadership models
  • Product development
  • Work team development
  • Return-on-investment calculations
  • Continuous assessment and evaluation metrics
  • Managing knowledge
  • Creating and integrated system
  • Practical uses of leadership development in a global workforce

With contributions from some of the most important thought leaders in leadership development, this volume offers a resource for designing, delivering, and evaluating successful leadership development programs.
