At GE, leadership development is always evolving. And in the interest of changing with the times, six months ago, the company started to examine what it means to be a leader in the 21st century.
GE instituted "leadership dialogues" to look at the issue, and participants ranged from top management to academics. Conversations have focused on the importance of networking, defining company stakeholders more broadly, and inspirational leadership.
And though the results aren't finalized just yet, the company plans to incorporate the findings into its leadership development process.
