Why Leadership Development Fails… 
and What You Can Do About It

We are witnessing a record amount of leadership development funding globally. At the same time, there is a record number of requests for evaluation at the Business Impact and ROI levels. While these two trends go hand in hand (increased investment means more accountability), they present challenges for the leadership development team. Add this to the fact that leadership development continues to fail to deliver results that executives appreciate. Unfortunately, evaluations are stuck at Level 1, 2, and 3 (Reaction, Learning, and Application). Executives want to see more Level 4 and 5 evaluations (Business Impact and ROI) particularly for major programs. This content rich and interactive session describes these trends with benchmarking studies and shows a clear path to design, develop, and execute programs to deliver business value. Participants will see how to connect leadership development to business value and to calculate ROI.

After attending this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify the reasons for failure of leadership development
  2. Describe the drivers for leadership development measurement
  3. Name at least 7 of 14 success factors of leadership development
  4. Develop a plan to implement at least 5 strategies to make leadership development more effective and results focused
Each participant will receive:
  • A 12 page handout
  • A job aid
  • Three ROI studies on leadership development
  • A free book
