Books By Bonnie Hagemann
The women in these stories are powerful, internationally diverse and have impressive leadership accomplishments. They were brought together through one unifying experience: they have all completed the Harvard Business School Women on Boards program, a course that has turned into a movement. Today there are over 130 members of the WomenExecs on Boards network, from 17 countries. This is the network where organizations go to find educated, prepared, qualified and diverse women for corporate board seats.
After reading this book you will be inspired to lead and make a difference for others whether it's running a company or leading a division, team, project, community event or your family and home. You will discover that you already have all you need to succeed when it gets hard, to never give up, and how to keep going through life's difficult and sometimes terrible challenges. These women want you to know that you are not alone, and that you can lean on the strength of those who have gone before you, keep leading and keep getting back up again and again.
From LinkedIn Learning Expert, Bonnie Hagemann comes the first book devoted entirely to vision as a key leadership principle.
Hagemann and her co-authors delve deeply into the notion that a compelling vision that motivates and inspires is a differentiator for organizations that want to hire and retain talent, be more competitive, and thrive in uncertain times. But a compelling vision on its own is not enough, which is why the authors, sought-after leadership development experts globally, provide readers with detailed analysis of the essential things leaders must do to effectively engage the workforce around that vision: embody courage, forge clarity, build connectedness, and shape culture.
Leading with Vision draws on quantitative data from the authors' research of over 400 companies supplemented with real-world examples from thoughtful leaders who exemplify the core principles of leading with vision in established companies, including: Olukai, Bumble Bee, Coresystems, Jimbo's, Bunge, and more. The book also includes an actionable blueprint developed by the authors that leaders and their organizations can implement on day one of their journey.
The Trends in Executive Development report has been the leading compilation of research for organizations across the globe to benchmark their executive and high-potential development practices.
Today, after more than 35 years of research and reports, it has become a trusted resource and industry benchmark created for talent and leadership development professionals as well as executives who believe in developing their organization’s talent in a way that they become a competitive advantage.
This year, the study is based on the direct input of those who oversee the development of the organization’s leaders for 1,030 medium and large organizations as well as the insights and analysis of executive development experts and executives.
2020 gave us an eye-opening look at the capabilities of our leaders and the 2021 survey results identify both current and future trends impacting the executive development industry. Some of the most interesting highlights include:
- We can be innovative when we have to be.
- Compassion increased and may need to be emphasized going forward.
- We need
- leaders who understand the whole company and not just their silos
- critical thinkers at every level
- increased communication & transparency
- ability to lead through change, change, and more change
- employees who are empowered to use their critical thinking skills
- companies who are genuinely committed to equity & inclusion
More importantly, a collective look at the trends points toward an overall need pause and review what is working and what is not and make the appropriate adjustments.
“The 2021 Trends gave us more insight than we expected, and we are excited to share the results. With 2020 we learned a lot about our leaders and their capabilities, and that knowledge is exactly what organizations need to create powerful executive development that will help them lead through the tumultuous landscape and win in the marketplace.”
-Bonnie Hagemann, CEO, EDA, Inc.

- Highly Influential Conditions
- Key Competencies in Demand
- Top Priorities Moving Forward
- Leadership Teams
- Hot Topics in Executive Development

- Layers of Leaders and the Leadership Pipeline

- Expenditures, Policy, & Strategy

The report is published every 2-3 years and each time, before the report is complete, we have executive development professionals proactively reaching out to us asking when the next round of research is being released. They want to know what other companies are doing, what the latest trends are, and how the research can help them develop their current and future executives into inspiring leaders. Those of us who do the work feel privileged to help both the up-and-coming high potentials as well as the seasoned C-Suite leaders and board members gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence that they need to lead their organizations into the future. Perhaps in the past, executives were considered developed once they made it to the top 5% of the organization, but today, leaders understand that learning must be continuous from the first day on the job to the last.
One thing you will notice is that through the years some of the questions are dropped and new ones are added. Over time, the top priorities and key issues impacting executive development shift with the external landscape. What was once an important topic may begin to show up in the bottom 5% of responses year after year until we know that it is no longer an important trend, and we remove it from the survey. Conversely, when trends such as digital transformation become integral to successful leadership and organizational success, it is necessary to add response choices that include such trends.”
These rapidly evolving demands include everything from climate change to demography, shifting customer requirements and expectations, the rise of technology, globalization, new markets, and new attitudes toward work. Leaders must now operate in a way that inspires and engages people, while simultaneously addressing changing customer requirements and delivering results. And if that is not enough, all of this needs to be achieved with a sense of urgency, as the experienced leaders of the “Baby Boomer” generation continue to retire at a pace of 10,000 per day.
This somewhat unnerving time of change is challenging most leaders to find new ways to lead their organizations and achieve sustained success. More and more leaders fundamentally believe that there is more that they don’t know than what they do know about leading through the coming years.
All of these circumstances have created a thirst for leadership. People need leadership and the diverse and escalating demands on leaders are reflected in 2016 Trends in Executive Development: A Benchmark Report. Our in-depth assessment is based on survey results from 466 organizations worldwide, with contributions from Presidents, Senior Vice Presidents, Chief Learning Officers, and Heads of Executive and Leadership Development. Supplementary information included in the report comes from a variety of sources, including our extensive biennial survey, interviews with leading organizations and subject matter experts as well as briefings with faculty and external providers of custom executive development solutions.
The Report is the product of a collaborative partnership between Executive Development Associates, Inc. (EDA), Pearson’s TalentLens group, and Performance Assessment Network (PAN).
EDA has conducted executive development trends surveys in the United States, and more recently on a global basis, for over 27 years.

Pearson’s TalentLens group has sponsored research, as part of their assessment business, which has been in existence for over 85 years. Pearson is committed to supporting research that increases the field’s knowledge of key talent assessment and management issues. Performance Assessment Network (PAN) joins us for the first time in 2016 as a research partner.
