Executive development is any attempt to improve managerial performance by imparting knowledge, changing attitudes or increasing skills.
The aim of executive development is not just to improve current job performance of managers but to prepare them for future challenging roles.
Executive development should be a planned and organized process of learning and growth designed to improve managerial behavior and performance of executives by cultivating their mental abilities and inherent qualities through the acquisition and application of advanced knowledge insights and skills.
Another way of looking at it: Executive development is eventually something that the executive has to attain himself. But he will do this much better if he is given encouragement, guidance and opportunity by his company.
Of course, along with developing tangible skill sets, today’s executive also needs a sense of intangible assets in the form of leadership core values. Leadership core value are the fundamental beliefs that drive the behaviors and actions of individuals – be they organizational leaders, public service workers or skilled professionals. Through these personal core values, organizations are defined, and leadership roles either become simpler or a nightmare of day to day problems and issues.
It’s extremely important for organizations to understand the intangible value of the cultural DNA (living company values) that resides within their organization and how it feeds directly into bottom-line performance and growth.
Core values help companies to determine if they are on the right path, fulfilling their goal or mission, living by their expected behaviors and ultimately how they treat and interact with their employees, customers, society and the environment. Just as there are many types of leaders and employees, so there are many different examples of leadership core values driving organizational engines.
