  11. Leadership development – Participation Participants by program, 2007 through Q1 2009 *Helping People Succeed Advanced is a new program to be piloted in June 2009

  12. Helping Leaders Succeed – Global survey feedback What are you doing differently? “I am much more aware of how people might see me or interpret my actions.” “Delegate more. Stay in touch with my peers.” “I express myself with enthusiasm and realize that my ‘heart’ emphasis is a strength even in a business environment.” “Focus more on describing goals to team, rather than defining tactics of how to get there, which encourages/enables team to devise own approaches to achieving.” “I'm paying more attention when negotiating with people of all levels.” “I've tried to be more patient with others and to mentor instead of redoing assignments”

  13. LeadershipConnect activity and feedback • 417 registered users since the site was announced on March 2, 2009 • Average of 55 visits a day • Three discussions added and eight responses posted Initial feedback… “This is really well done.  Reflects an enormous effort.  Hopefully it will become viral.” “Nice site!  Great to have a one-stop shop.” “I will add a question in the forum to add traffic... just as soon as I have a legitimate question to ask!” “I just "surfed" through Leadership Connect and my first impression is FANTASTIC!” “CONGRATULATIONS and thank you for giving us these tools to make us better leaders in Mercer. This will make Mercer an even better place to work and will reinforce the true "Mercer spirit."

  14. Lessons learned • Senior leadership support and involvement is critical • Holistic curriculum for all levels of management supports enterprise-wide capability building • Phased approach for introduction of modules is fine • Program content must link and reference previous programs • Program content must grow and change as the audience and strategy matures • Pilot in various regions allows for relevance of global approaches and content • Shared experience, whether face-to-face or through other media, is invaluable
