The cold, harsh reality of business today is the lack of good leaders across all levels of an organization. While good corporate governance can raise the flag, the problem lies in not having strategies and initiatives at hand that can solve the problem. The problem is compounded by the challenging and complex business realities managers from every level--sales, production, marketing, information technologies, and operations--are facing. This reality is not lost on human resources professionals, who must align resources and initiatives with the inherent demands facing their organizations.

Accelerating Leadership Development provides a model to assist companies to develop high-potential employees to 1) assume critical roles, and 2) develop competencies, intellectual and knowledge capital.
The book offers practical and rigorous tools and practices that enable organizations to identify high-potentials and presents the six factors that can predict the success of future leaders. Once identified, the organization needs to prepare them to lead by developing their strengths and addressing their weaknesses.
Development solutions are presented as well as follow-up procedures to ensure activities are executed and results are captured. The measures of success are a pipeline of ready leaders, high-potential engagement and retention, and the development of intellectual capital.

But processes and engaged HR professionals are only part of the solution. What of the high-potentials themselves? Leadership is an opportunity and a challenge. Accelerating Leadership Development offers a unique set of strategies and initiatives to enable leaders to build capacity and confidence in their ability to perform. Within a results-oriented framework, the book addresses communication and delegation strategies; useful feedback models; how to shift responsibility and accountability to direct reports; contemporary coaching and development approaches; the role of performance management; and OnBoarding as an essential business practice.

The ideas and concepts in Accelerating Leadership Development are built on research and client interaction, and the many case studies illustrate how interconnected are business strategy and leadership development.
