You may have heard the saying: “meetings are places where good ideas go to die”. I’d add that in the leadership development space, death by a thousand PowerPoint slides is a prevalent crime.
There is however a growing desire to revisit the way many organisations approach leadership development, and for good reason. The traditional ‘chalk-and-talk’ method, where participants sit for hours trying to absorb theoretical information, is often time wasted. Without practical coaching on how to apply learnings in the workplace, the knowledge doesn't always stick.
