OSHKOSH, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sometimes, leadership is a trait people are born with. Other times, it can be taught. In-house leadership development has become an increasingly popular trend within organizations today, especially by way of team mentoring. Promotional products retailer 4imprint created a Blue Paper® and podcast entitled To the top with in-house leadership development and team mentoring to help explain how team mentoring can help lead the way for future business leaders.
“Leadership skills and mentoring programs are topics many companies face”
“Leadership skills and mentoring programs are topics many companies face,” states Greg Ebel, the vice president of sales and marketing at 4imprint. “This Blue Paper gives businesses of all sizes some ideas on how to identify and fine-tune those leadership skills with their own resources through team mentoring.”
As competition between businesses soars, so too does the need for sharp leaders to help businesses distinguish themselves from one another. Pairing existing in-house managers and executives with less-experienced staff members is one tactic companies are using to impart important leadership skills like communication and decision making from one “generation” of leaders to the next. That way, valuable company-specific information is not lost when leaders leave.
This Blue Paper and podcast include a number of important points about leadership development and team mentoring. Here are a few:
- Perceived post-recession leadership deficit in the United States
- Definitions of leadership and leadership development
- Implementing leadership development at your work place
- An overview of team mentoring and how to make it a reality
- Advice from the CEO of a company that relies on mentoring
- And a case study of a company notorious for its great leadership development program
