The missing step in leadership development: How to evolve high-potential talent for leading through disruption Leadership | Evolve Continuous disruption is defining the 21st century, from rapid advances in technology to political unrest to pandemics. For organizations, building a strong leadership bench continues to be a crucial strategy in not only surviving but thriving amid current and future disruptions. This brief is the final piece in a series of three created to help organizations define, develop, and evolve strong, agile leaders. Forward-thinking organizations define and develop leaders. But how often do they also help leaders evolve? According to leadership expert Steve Dobberowsky, senior principal for Talent Management at Cornerstone, this third step of creating a strong leadership bench is frequently overlooked. "It takes a lot of work—and a very astute training organization—to complete the first two phases of leadership development. But organizations can't stop there. In an age of continual disruption, organizations have to also help leaders evolve." Why do so few organizations make it to the "evolve" phase of leadership development? "There is a common perception that once an organization has built a leadership development program, all that remains is to reinforce that program," says Dobberowsky. "But that's a myth. To respond quickly to 21st century disruptions—a merger or acquisition, a new competitor, or an environmental factor—your leadership model, like your organization, has to continually adapt and grow."
