Some must follow key pointers:

1) Organization Structure with Career Progression Plan: Integrate Executive Education and training program with Career Progression Planning of the Individual, one should pursue the monetary and non-monetary benefits out of it

2) Create and launch the “Internal Leadership Building” Policy: This will create a systematic step by step approach to building a funnel of internal leadership programs,

3) Do skill will gap analysis: While sponsoring the team member, Reporting manager must do a Skill-will gap analysis and then select the program and subject to ensure the interest level of the person remains. RM Should do before and after (post-program completion) mid reviews on the capability enhancement.

4) Seek the voluntary interest instead of the authority approach: Mostly managers are sent to the program, and their participation during the program does not elevate, if they are not sent forcefully. During our IIM-A Days, we have observed that people from the corporate used to come, but 50% of them are participating up to certain limits only.

5) Pre Counselling to engage the team member: One who is aligned, One who has understood the why of the skill upgradation, our tent to deliver more than what is expected, as a leader you have to show them a larger picture. One-to-one counseling can help your team member to decide the why and participate in the best possible way.

(Note: If the team members are new, see their sustainability and history with the past company)

6) Get into the Formal Contract for NDA- NCA up to 36 Months post-Ex. Ed.: This will set all other expectations from the team members, during our engagement with SME Clients, we have dealt with this issue so many times, and Reporting managers feel discomfort while asking for the legal contractual commitment.

7) Integrate Reward System for best performer under the Policy: When team members take up the new opportunity and deliver the result the policy must offer some capital reward items, Exciting rewards accordingly.

8) Do midterm informal coffee meetings with the team member to share and show the impact

Whether it is a long term program or a short term program, as a Reporting Manager you must do informal meetings with your emerging leadership team, especially who are involved in the change management initiative, such meeting connects you with them, you can know their future aspect, build a bond to influence them in the future.

9) Take the action against those who breach the contract: the policy always has a darker part, when doing everything, Reporting manager also does the needful provision dealing with the one who breaches the contractual agreement and set the example, by doing so, future people will get the importance of the same.
