A range of programmes were looked at for the Project's brief survey of current leadership development practice.
It was noted that the growth in experiential learning as a basis for leadership development has been dramatic and there appear to be few programmes that don't include some element of this, whether it is action learning sets, mentoring or task / project challenges.
It was found that time for self-reflection has also increased and as well as the use of psychometric tools and reflective journals.
Few programmes, it was noted, openly address issues of equality and diversity and there was also found to be a significant growth in organisational leadership programmes that are focused at all levels of managers, rather than just senior leaders.
Further information on this research can be found in section 4 of the final report.
