New research to be launched at leadership conference

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is launching new research investigating leadership transitions at its Leadership Conference on the 6 June, 2007.

Based on the research findings from a survey conducted by Development Dimensions International (DDI), the CIPD says it will highlight the most important issues on the leadership agenda and will show that the support given to individuals moving into leadership roles is often ineffective.

Simon Mitchell, director, Development Dimensions International, who authored the research for the CIPD will be speaking at the event and will examine the research, showing how career transitions affect individuals and the organisations in which they work.

The CIPD says the conference will:

  • Discuss practical approaches to developing leaders in an organisation
  • Examine how to recognise and develop leadership potential
  • Help identify the leadership behaviours that will support the long-term objectives of an organisation
  • Provide an opportunity to discuss the leadership challenges facing organisations

The CIPD Leadership Conference 2007 takes place on 06 June 2007 at The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), 195 Piccadilly, London.
