Using the “force” of video technology to reveal your organization’s leaders

In a not so distant future…

Video’s ability to leverage multiple senses and convey information quickly and effectively is quickly earning it a role in today’s corporate environment as an essential tool for learning and development. One use that is often overlooked however, is video’s ability to cultivate professional growth and ultimately reveal the next generation of leaders within an organization. A leader in a haystack… If you’re commanding a battalion of storm troopers it’s difficult to know who your future leaders are. The discovery of your next great manager or executive is absolutely priceless. After spending thousands of dollars on training and development, the last thing a business wants is for a future Jedi to jump ship and shine somewhere else. This is a battle that human resources and training departments fight on a daily basis. But when it comes to developing and identifying leadership, a company can only do so much. Meanwhile, employees tell us that employers are not providing enough opportunity for professional growth and career advancement. Despite the all the training that’s going on, many employees feel that there isn’t a direct way to showcase their leadership abilities and help them to advance.

So give them a voice…

We often look at video as a top-down communications tool where executives and training departments are pushing information downstream. This is great for long distance trainings and building an on-demand resource library with detailed Death Star blueprints, but video can be used for so much more. Video not only allows employees to take control of what and when they are learning, it also provides them with the ability to share their ideas, collaborate with peers, mentor others, and let their leadership abilities shine. A technology that provides easy-to-use tools for video capture and peer collaboration can ultimately help an organization to identify individuals that exhibit the chemistry, conviction, and character needed to fill leadership roles.
