Break the Curse: How to Fix Frightening Leadership Development


It’s not just scary at Halloween – chances are you want to develop your leaders, yet whatever you try, you can’t seem to achieve exactly what you want. Although you may think it, you aren't cursed. The problem is, in many ways how we do leadership development is broken. After all, if it weren’t broken, you wouldn’t be thinking about spending one hour on Halloween to solve the puzzle.

While there is much wrong with the way leadership development is implemented in organizations, there are glimmers of hope - and there are approaches that will work, when placed into proper context.

In this provocative, challenging, and ultimately very positive and hopeful session, Kevin Eikenberry will share what he has observed in writing about, working with, coaching, and training leaders (as well as leading himself) over the last thirty years. He will throw back the curtain, get you to think about what they know but don’t want to talk about, and help you see how it really can be fixed. Most importantly, you will leave with a new vision and new resolve to help the leaders in your organizations become more effective and successful in reaching their potential.

Prepare to be challenged and perhaps provoked a bit. Before we are done, you will have new insights that will help you create more effective leadership development experiences and perhaps even more importantly, help you gain real commitment and engagement from the people who matter most – those with budgets.

At the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  • Describe why the problems with leadership development are more pressing than ever
  • Apply new insights to help gain true organizational commitment to leadership development
  • Use a model that places leadership development in a context where it can succeed
  • Describe what is required, beyond skills, to lead successfully
