Leadership development programs help to create a positive company culture built on communication, inclusivity and shared productivity

CANBERRA, Australia - AussieJournal -- Leadership development is a strategic process designed to help employees develop their leadership skills and competencies to prepare them for management and leadership roles within an organisation. The Acorn subject matter experts believe it's best to develop leaders from within rather than finding them externally. To achieve this, organisations need a strong leadership development program. In a recent article, the Acorn experts dive into the benefits of such a plan as well as how to structure one.

Leadership development programs (LDPs) are structured plans designed to help employees develop the critical skills they require for success in their careers by providing the necessary guidance and knowledge. They are usually structured and tailored to the unique needs of the individual employee and the organisation as a whole.

Utilising a strong LDP makes it easier for organisations to attract and retain talent, improve financial performance, drive strategy, increase productivity, train future leaders and foster culture. Poor or no leadership development can negatively impact areas like employee retention or result in decreased productivity.

While an LDP should be unique to an organisation, there are some essential building blocks that should also be considered. These include practical mentoring and coaching opportunities, clearly defined goals and milestones, a culture of responsibility, clear communications and supportive leaders.
