What It Takes to Be a Top Company for Leaders—
The Four Disciplines
1. Leaders Lead
the Way
Senior leaders
have a passionate
and visible
commitment to
developing
leaders
Leadership development is at the top of the CEO and
senior team’s agenda
Leaders model the behavior they expect of others and are
dedicated to the development of talent and building a pipeline
of leaders
2. Unrelenting
Focus on Talent
An intense focus
on talent
permeates every
level of the
organization
Developing talent is seen as a mission-critical business
process; differentiation of top talent is a given
Involves more than just developing people, but also how you
hire, coach, promote, and reward

What It Takes to Be a Top Company for Leaders—
The Four Disciplines
3. Practical and
Aligned Programs
and Practices
Leadership
strategy clearly
reflects the overall
business strategy
Leadership programs and practices are closely aligned with
business goals
Banish “nice to have” programs and practices, and scrutinize the
actual shift in leader effectiveness
4. When Leadership
Becomes a
Way of Life
The development
of leaders is an
institutionalized
practice and
mind-set
It is a way of behaving that is woven into every aspect of the
business—the culture, the way decisions are made, and the
growth strategy
Think in terms of rhythms, not initiatives. There is no “end state”
in mind. Once a rhythm is in place, sustain it as an ongoing
discipline

Major Themes in 2009
Top Companies still driving leadership development—with even
more focus
Deliberate attempts to address the economic conditions
Increased leader visibility and communication—open, candid, and clear
More concentration on building emerging leaders—identifying them
earlier, rapidly developing them
Rotational job assignments losing favor to more long term developmental
assignments—focus more on depth rather than breadth
Continued Board pressure for greater rigor
Led by a strong “central hand”
Use Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to attract, engage, develop,
and retain talent

Laying the Foundation for Success—
What Companies Must Get Right
Leadership and talent strategy—closely aligned to and executed
against organizational goals
Selection and onboarding—a rigorous and consistent approach
Leadership—right leaders, right behaviors, and right skills
Robust talent reviews—honest talent-management discussions
facilitated and calibrated consistently; transparent and strong
performance-management expectations
Development—accelerated development through experiential, relational,
and traditional processes; driven from the top
Succession management—deep and robust talent pipeline
High-potential and critical talent—definition, identification, calibration,
and development
Metrics—to drive desired results, differentiated compensation,
and rewards
