Addressing the Critical Gaps in Leadership Readiness

9Percent of C-level executives who were confident they had capable internal candidates to succeed their executive team members.
58Percent of non-executive leaders who are confident they are ready to be promoted to the executive team.
K-12 Ed-tech companies are struggling to cultivate sufficient leadership capacity. According to C-level Executives, half of the time (56%) it is because their department heads lack sufficient managerial expertise.
This significant gap management readiness and employee confidence is an indication of: 
    • Unclear expectations regarding the skills and competencies required at the next level
    • Failure to support emerging leaders with mentoring or formal leadership development programs
    • Insufficient support systems to help ensure newly hired or newly promoted employees succeed in their new roles

Emerging Leaders Aren't Receiving the Support They Need

23Percent of non-executive leaders whose manager provides feedback only once per year or less. 
15Percent of non-executive leaders whose manager provided clear guidance and support to help them advance their career.
Despite the acknowledged lack of leadership depth, companies continue to under-invest in their next-level leaders. Gaps in leadership readiness can be attributed to a lack of frequency and quality of coaching and mentoring.
