In this book, the authors share their experience in designing and implementing leadership development strategies, processes and practices. Whilst the backing of good science and research is clearly evident, the focus is very much on the practical side of this hugely challenging field. In this sense, the book attempts to simplify a complex human capital challenge, so that people and companies who know ‘what’ to do, now also have a guideline on ‘how’. Do the approach and toolsets work? In our case, progressing from the design to the implementation of a multilevel leadership development process took less than six months, using the approach shared here. If you have read all there is to read on leadership development and are still wondering how to implement such processes, this publication deserves to be on your desk, not only on your bookshelf.
