In a recent article, CNN listed the top 25 companies for leaders according to Fortune Magazine. The article states that the companies listed “go above an beyond the call of duty when it comes to grooming talent from within.” Though there is great diversity in the Fortune list, which includes an American fast-food company, a Chinese property developer, and a Spanish bank, what the companies share in common is the view that cultivating strong leaders is a “strategic priority.”
Many of these corporations begin fostering leadership at the entry level and promote continuous learning for those leaders all the way up to the C-suite. This helps to form leaders who are knowledgeable of and invested in their companies, especially when leadership is developed over the long term.
