Interweaving Vertical and Horizontal Development: A Whole-Person Approach to Scale Leadership

Tuesday, August 9, 2022 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT

When it comes to the mainstream understanding of leadership, one mode of development dominates: horizontal. Horizontal development—building skills, expertise, knowledge, and competencies—is what people usually refer to when discussing leadership development. It is necessary, but alone it doesn’t develop leaders who can operate effectively in today’s ever-changing world.

Vertical development is less understood, often neglected, and more nuanced. It is critical for leaders to effect systemic change. Vertical development transforms who a leader is. It shifts their mindset, challenges their beliefs, increases wisdom, expands consciousness, and ultimately builds a leader’s capacity to interpret, relate, and lead in today’s complex world.

During this webinar, you will:

  • Explore the importance of connecting vertical and horizontal leadership in pursuit of scalable leadership.
  • Determine the cost of focusing largely on horizontal leadership development and why it still dominates the market.
  • Identify vertical development and see how it scales leadership and can be nurtured.
  • Discover how these two forms of development combine to produce tangible results.
