Next Generation Leaders

Oct 24, 2009

Most next generation leaders have a good education and valuable experience. They know the fundamentals and can perform the rudiments of the job. Yet they often crave more vocational (professional) development, especially as it relates to leadership. To grow an operation that is bigger, better, stronger and faster, a leader must be well-versed in people management, team development, project coordination, business design and professional growth.
In our leadership development engagements, we first recommend some form of leadership assessment – which may include:
The leadership culture of the operation
The strategic directions of the current management
The motivations of the individual and/or
The leadership behaviors exhibited by our clients.
From the assessment we will build a leadership development plan that may include a combination of:
  • Technical Classes
  • Self Study
  • Seminars/Workshops
  • Outside (off farm) Work Experience       
  • Volunteer Organizations
  • Mentor / Protégé  

Using our Leadership Skills Inventory may give a person some immediate self-feedback.
