A Scrappy And Highly Practical Approach To Develop Frontline Leaders

Over the course of 40+ interviews with chief people officers (CPOs), each shared their approach to developing first-line leaders. Many CPOs had large budgets and equally large programs. Some CPOs even had the budget to scale one-on-one executive coaching to first-line managers. However, many others had smaller budgets or faced such rapid growth that they had to quickly implement a new program. Often, it was the companies that had to work quickly and with a limited budget that had the most effective and creative approaches.

Here are a few examples:

  • manager power hours with the CPO of Box
  • teaching at scale by conducting live post-mortems of leadership mistakes with a group of peers at Alto Pharmacy, and
  • a “manager digest” of timely monthly topics centered on key skills at 10x Genomics

In this recent interview, CPO of Collective Health Abbie Buck shared a best-in-class example of how a rapidly growing tech company can still deliver highly effective leadership development opportunities to the frontline on a budget.
