Why Early-Stage Leaders Deserve More Love: Insights from Shane Hatton

In the bustling world of business, it’s easy to overlook the burgeoning talent nestled within your team, especially those early-stage leaders poised for greatness. Shane Hatton, a maestro in the realms of leadership and culture, recently shed light on this very topic, emphasising the pivotal role these leaders play in the success and vitality of an organisation.

There's people in the middle of the organisations who are kind of the overlooked people,” Hatton points out, stressing the gap in leadership development that many fail to bridge. The conversation with Hatton isn't merely an exchange of thoughts but a clarion call to action for businesses to rethink their approach to nurturing their nascent leaders.

The Missing Link in Leadership Development

According to Hatton, the leadership development spectrum seems polarised, with ample support at the very top and bottom tiers of an organisation, yet a glaring void in the middle. “It's kind of two layers of development. There's really senior leadership development programs... And then there's really technical training,” he observes. This leaves those in the crucial early stages of leadership in a bit of a lurch, underserved and underappreciated.

Why does this matter? As Hatton elucidates, the consequences of neglecting this crucial demographic can be dire, dragging down the overall capability of an organisation. “What ends up happening is the rest of the organisation above them gets pulled down to the level of the capability of those leaders,” he warns. It paints a clear picture: support your early-stage leaders, or risk the foundational strength of your entire team.

A Call to Nurture

The essence of Hatton’s message is not just to spotlight a problem but to encourage a solution. He champions the idea of investing in the growth and development of these emerging leaders, not just for their individual benefit but for the holistic success of the business. “The value of investing in those leaders can help your organisation continue to move forward,” Hatton advises, highlighting the ripple effect of such an investment.

This is where initiatives like the 'So Now You’re A Leader' course come into play. Designed with the early-stage leader in mind, this course fills the void that Hatton speaks of, offering a comprehensive toolkit for those looking to grow their leadership capabilities from the ground up. It’s an opportunity to give these leaders the love and attention they so richly deserve, ensuring they, and in turn, the organisations they serve, thrive.

The Verdict?

Supporting early-stage leaders isn’t just a nice-to-have; it’s a must-have for businesses aiming for success in today’s competitive landscape. “I reckon one of the dangers... is more important to be aware of what happens when we lose that,” Hatton reflects on the peril of neglect. His words serve as a potent reminder of the importance of fostering leadership at every level.

If you’re keen to give your early-stage leaders the love they deserve and propel your business to new heights, 'So Now You’re A Leader' course might just be the stepping stone you need. Let’s not overlook those in the middle; instead, let’s uplift them, empower them, and watch as they help steer the ship to uncharted territories of success and beyond.

Organisational responsibility in the digital age

In our hyper-connected world, the boundaries between our online and offline lives are blurring. But as we embrace this digital age, are organisations doing enough to safeguard their teams? In our thought-provoking 'Eggshell' conversation with digital empowerment expert Yasmin London we explored the role of organisational responsibility in the digital landscape.

Watch the free replay here

First things first, have you ever considered the impact of the online world on your team's well-being? Yasmin shares a startling insight: "96% of deepfakes are pornographic in nature and 99% include women." It's clear that the digital realm is not just a playground but also a battleground, especially for women. How is your organisation addressing this?

But it's not just about deepfakes. The online disinhibition effect, as Yasmin explains, is where "people are more willing to say or do things online that they would never do in a face-to-face situation." This can lead to a toxic online environment that spills over into the workplace. Are you fostering digital resilience among your team to navigate these challenges?

Now, here's the million-pound question: What is your organisation doing to support employees facing online abuse, even if it happens outside of work? Yasmin emphasises the importance of creating safe spaces for conversations and providing resources for online safety. "It's not just about responsibility," she says, "it's about doing what's right."

So, let's reflect. Is your organisation proactive in educating and protecting your team in the digital world? Are you fostering an environment where everyone feels safe, respected, and empowered, both online and offline?

We'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences on this crucial topic. Let's keep the conversation going and work together to make the digital age a safer and more inclusive space for all.
