Leadership Training - Top Priority for Many Companies

One trend we've seen over and over in our yearly L&D benchmarking survey is that of leadership as by far the highest priory area of employee development for L&D professionals. So why is leadership training and development so important to the modern business?

Research by ATD shows that after taking steps to improve their leadership development training programs, organizations reported 114% higher sales, 70% lower turnover, 71% higher customer satisfaction and 90% lower absenteeism among other things. Clearly the money that goes into leadership training is well spent.

That said, developing an effective leadership development program in-house is no easy feat. In Deloitte's 2019 Human Capital Trends report, they found that while 80% of respondents rated leadership as a high priority for their organization, only 41% said that their company was ready or very ready to meet leadership requirements. 

If you relate to these stats, then it may be time to rework your organization's leadership development program with some external help.

Why Invest in External Leadership Training?

At, we work with top training providers who are true innovators and thought-leaders in the world of leadership training and development. Not only do they offer a range of classroom, online, and on-site training options for leaders of all levels, but many of them also have the expertise to help you develop your internal leadership development program. Get in touch by requesting information to find out more about what service each offers.

While it's important to prioritize leadership development internally, external leadership training can really boost your efforts. Exposing future high-potential leaders and current executives to a wider range of ideas and best practices brings in ideas and skills that they may never have gotten internally. They will bring these ideas back to the organization to the benefit of all.

In modern leadership training programs, it's common to begin and end with an in-depth analysis of participant's strengths and weaknesses that they will work on improving throughout the program. While this is important for growth, it can be an intense process that most people would not be comfortable going through with colleagues. An external leadership training program offers a neutral, safe environment for growth.
