I came across this useful blog by Liggy Webb for the Training Journal with some top tips for creating a Leadership Development Programme.
In short the tips are around the following 4 areas :-
1. Identify your company's leadership needs
2. Don't train, develop
3. Discover your potential leaders
4. Measure you results
I have attached the link to the full article below. It's well worth a read!
It would be good to hear from other community members who have experience in designing Leadership Development Programmes and have some top tips to share as well.
