Leadership Development Approach Linked to Overall Business Strategy Equals Maximum Results

Four Northern California Events on the Topic Reveal the Latest Research

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - September 28, 2007) - Just as water runs downhill, so do the effects of strong or weak leadership. That's why it is so important for companies of all industries and sizes to begin developing their future leaders today. This way, when current executives retire, their predecessors can easily step in, gain respect and credibility and perform under pressure to deliver results.

How leadership is defined and developed in today's organizations, as well as leadership development best practices that can be applied for maximum results, is at the center of a 2007 Leadership Survey and the "Results Driven Leadership" events for Northern California executives hosted by leading talent management solutions company Lee Hecht Harrison's Leadership Consulting group. These events will be held:

--  Sacramento: Tuesday, October 2, 8 a.m.-10 a.m. at Sterling Hotel
--  San Francisco: Thursday, October 4, 8 a.m.-10 a.m. at Le Meridien San
--  San Jose: Wednesday, October 10, 8 a.m.-9:45 a.m. at The Hilton Santa
--  Walnut Creek: Thursday, October 11, 2:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. at Crow Canyon
    Country Club

Executives who attend the Lee Hecht Harrison events will learn how their peers, who participated in the study, define outstanding leadership. Additionally, they will discover how sophisticated organizations directly link their leadership development approach to overall business strategy, and how leadership development money is increasingly being spent.
