FACTORS THAT LEAD TO SUCCESSFUL LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT: A CASE STUDY OF WORLD VISION KENYA

There has been a keen interest in leadership development in recent years. Many institutions are in existence to provide various training programmes in leadership development. Organizations are established to accomplish their mission and vision and this can only be done if the organization has competent employees with good leadership abilities . Unfortunately most employees join organizations at lower cadre and rise through the ranks. Most of this employees when given leadership roles lack leadership capabilities and face challenges when dealing with employees. This negatively impacts the employees working under them in those organizations and this can eventually lead to a high staff turnover. Surveys and exit interviews done at World Vision Kenya identified leadership gaps and hence a need for leadership and management skills. Because of the value attached to leadership development, World Vision Kenya initiated a leadership program to fill the leadership gap and management gaps. Factors that have been highlighted in “Linkage Inc.’s Best Practices in Leadership Development Handbook” were identified to be present but unfortunately the majority of the respondents (57%) were of the opinion that leadership development program was not successful. Various reasons have been mention and an analysis of the missing ingredients of the Leadership development indicate that success factors play 50% role while people’s attitude play 50% role in the leadership development program. Leadership development should not only focus on success factors but also on attitudes of the employees both in the program and those not in the program. Discontentment by either groups can lead to failure of the program.
