Alice Mar Rocher discusses the evolvement of Leadership Development (LD) efforts through its history as a management tool, and the implications for Human Resource professionals as the demographic profile of leaders has fundamentally changed since the creation of LD.

In this excellent overview and call to action, Ms. Rocher relates the beginnings of the practice now known as leadership development including theories of leadership and shows how the practice’s origins and evolution - dominated by a white male mindset - have caused challenges for women and people of color since. Ms. Rocher identifies programmatic aspects HR professionals need to consider to drive development for all leaders today. She includes objective 21st-century data showing diverse leadership teams outperforming non-diverse groups, as well as emerging research indicating women have a significant advantage relative to leadership competencies vs. men, which begs the question: why are women not more highly represented in C-level leadership roles?

Finally, to enable HR practitioners to create change in their organizations, Ms. Rocher discusses what works in developing women as leaders, effective practices in model companies today, the role of men in emerging women leaders and critical elements of inclusive development practice.
