MEDIA ADVISORY: Why Leadership Training Shouldn’t Be Reserved for Top Performers
A recently published article on the Harvard Business Review website features new research from York University’s Schulich School of Business.
The article highlights how organizations typically provide leadership training opportunities to those who already have a track record of success, creating a situation where training resources end up disproportionately going toward individuals who may need it the least. The authors of the article argue that organizations need to offer leadership training to a wider cross-section of their workforce, thereby enhancing the available pool of talent and making the organizations more resilient because they are not reliant on a small handful of “star” performers.
The article is written by Winny Shen, Associate Professor of Organization Studies at the Schulich School of Business, and Navio Kwok, Vice President of Research and Marketing at Kilberry.
Professor Shen is available to provide expert commentary and insight regarding the research.
