Leadership Development That Makes A Difference

TLC have recently conducted a leadership survey about what makes Leadership Development Programmes successful and the pitfalls to avoid. Participants were senior HR/OD/L&D practioners in 54 large UK companies including BMW Group, E.ON, Essex County Council, Govia Thameslink Railway, NFU Mutual, One Housing, The Priory Group, and Saint Gobain. Read the powerful insights these organisations share about what is and what isn’t working well in implementing Leadership Development Programmes, what pitfalls to avoid, future leadership trends and concluding with recommendations.


Latest 360 Research Report

Following our in-depth 360 research with professional services firms 2 years’ ago, we commissioned a more in-depth study around the use, implementation and experience of 360-degree feedback in large UK organisations. Participants were HR, OD and L&D Directors and Managers in 49 large UK organisations collectively employing approximately 410,000 people.  Read how nearly every organisation uses 360 but in a variety of different ways.  The research indicates that although some best practices are adhered to in the running of 360, there is still room for improvement in many organisations. The report concludes with recommendations to improve organisations' experiences of 360-degree feedback.

Highlighting the results from our recent survey into how 360 is being used in some of the UK's largest professional services firms, we draw some conclusions and offer two 'golden nuggets' for your future implementations.


How Coaching is Being Managed and Tracked

This research commissioned by us and carried out by market research company Adsum looks at how coaching is managed in large UK organisations. Based on interviews with 69 organisations collectively employing 688,000 people it found that the majority of organisations do not know how many are actively engaged with an external coach and almost half do not know their total spend on coaching each year.  It concludes that whilst a handful of organisations are very satisfied with how coaching is managed in their organisation, the vast majority feel there’s room for improvement, particularly around evaluation.


HR and Talent in the 21st Century

This research by talent assessment partner company Zircon investigates the internal and external challenges impacting the HR and Talent agenda, the characteristics of a successful HR and Talent leader, the future requirements of HR and Talent in 2014 to 2017 and the capability of HR and Talent to deliver those future requirements.  In order to ensure success, the report concludes that leaders need to be more externally and commercially focused to deliver the requirements of 2014 and beyond and should review their mix of talent within HR teams to ensure there is balance of strategic, articulate, commercial and pragmatic approaches to be fully effective.


360 Degree Feedback in Professional Services Firms

TLC commissioned market research company Adsum to investigate how 360 degree feedback is used in some of the largest law and accountancy firms and benchmarked the results against the Sunday Times "Top 100 Best Places to Work" (Medium-sized Companies).


The Future of Talent Management

This research by talent assessment partner company Zircon looks at how organisations approach talent management and identifies whether or not they have a “talent mindset”.  It found that whilst the majority of organisations have talent management strategies, these are not well communicated to Business Leaders. Whilst half of the 85 Leaders interviewed believe their organisation has a clear definition of talent and a clear TM strategy, the other half are not clear about what their organisation really means by “talent” or “talent strategy”.


Our recommended 5-Step 360 Process

Data drawn from our original research, plus our experience in implementing 360 projects since 2002, has led us to conclude that there are five key steps to ensuring a successful 360 feedback implementation. The 5 Key Steps to a successful 360 degree feedback implementation are:
Step 1: Questionnaire
Step 2: Briefing
Step 3: Rating
