This paper shares the following insights for Chief Learning Officers interested in leveraging evidence-based practices to accelerate leader development at scale and unlock the collective potential of their workforce:
- A brief overview of why we need new ways to develop leaders and a high-level description of the new digital assessment and development tools that meet individuals where they are – offering a highly personalized approach to development in-the-flow of work.
- A review of eight research-based learning practices that provide a foundation for leveraging technology to make in-the-flow leadership development better, faster, and more accessible to leaders at all levels. For every learning practice, we provide implementation tips and discuss illustrative example tools.
- We conclude with a discussion around the strategic use of the eight learning practices for enabling better organization-wide development outcomes.
