Primary event: Beyond Leadership: What the Study of Individual Development Can Tell Us about Transforming Organizations

For the last several years, CEOs have been reporting that organizational leaders’ ability to meet the challenges of the future is one of their biggest concerns they have for their business. From the field of psychology, theories of adult development are contributing to our understanding of how we can develop leaders capable of meeting these challenges. In some organizations, this theory is guiding initial efforts at transforming the approach to leadership development. However, there are still significant challenges to redefining the way we develop organizational leaders with these vertical theories. Through the presentation of original research, this session will highlight the key factors determining whether organizations are prepared implement vertical leadership development. The conclusion of the session will consider how the field of organizational development can integrate learnings from vertical development to support the system-level changes needed to transform the way we develop leaders.
