At this year’s North Carolina Society of Human Resources Management Conference, held in Pinehurst, NC, the concern and need for well-trained, effective Leaders for the Future, was on the minds of those Human Resources Professional attendees. Too many companies and organizations have their senior business leaders retiring, leaving a big void, leaving the businesses in a weak situation without experienced decision makers, and a workforce feeling uneasy or insecure.
Without experienced business leaders/decision makers, an organization could find themselves at risk of their competitors making aggressive attempts to take away their customers and sales, as well as enticing their good employees to leave.
Experienced Leaders possess the knowledge, resources, and loyalty of key employees, from which these leaders incorporate into an effective strategy to keep their businesses strong. Without these “experienced leaders”, new leaders are less able to pull off a strong strategy to keep the business in tact and growing. It takes time to develop and train an effective leader. Leadership Training Programs need to be a series of well-structured exercises and education with plenty of interactions and exchanges before new prospective leaders can grasp how to utilize these lessons.
As more and more experienced, senior leaders retire and leave organizations, more companies will find themselves in a lurch, especially if they have NOT been investing lots of specific training for new leaders. Unfortunately, too many employers are unable to understand how important it is to spend the necessary funds on “effective leadership training”. Though most human resources professionals do encourage this investment, it can be a real challenge to relay and convince their employers.
