With the billions spent on leadership development, why are leaders still lacking the skills they need to actually lead? One reason is that organizations have gone too far in addressing competencies and have forgotten that leaders need a foundation of basic skills to build competencies. In this webcast, the presenters will apply their decades of experience in leadership development to examine how to refocus on Interaction Essentials—the “secret sauce”—that is the key to better leaders. In fact, because Interaction Essentials are part of all leader competencies, initial training on the Essentials means that training initiatives focusing on competencies will have a greater payoff.

The speakers will provide hard evidence that:

• The Interaction Essentials are more related to job performance than any single leadership competency.
• Competencies are highly inter-correlated because they share the Interaction Essentials.
• New leaders have a greater need to develop the Interaction Essentials than any combination of competencies.

Fortunately, the Interaction Essentials are trainable. The presenters will explain how the skills can be developed in a relatively short-time period when they are combined with other leadership training.
