With baby boomers hitting retirement age, every company faces an urgent need to develop the next generation of leaders.  Many large companies already have leadership development programs in place, but what about small to mid-sized companies facing the same talent crisis but without comparable resources?

Now these companies have a guide.  Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline provides a comprehensive blueprint for leadership development tailored to the needs and challenges of companies with fewer than five thousand employees.  Leadership development veteran Daniel Tobin takes you through the entire process of developing a cost-effective, accountable leadership development program. You will discover how to:

  • Identify high-potential talent
  • Define key leadership competencies in your company
  • Establish the four basic components of an effective leadership development program
  • Harness the power of mentoring and coaching
  • Evaluate program effectiveness
  • Calculate what it will cost in budgetary and staff resources.

Every chapter includes checklists, forms, tables, and other tools that can be used by any company to put Tobin’s seasoned advice into practice.
