Leadership training and development program

With the right training, anyone can be a great leader

The most effective leaders are often defined by how they manage their teams. They are driven by the growth of their people, their business, and their careers. They know how to listen to their teams and keep them motivated and aligned with company goals. 

Doing all of this while juggling their own personal and professional growth can be a tall ask. It requires strong management skills, empathy, resilience, and a toolbox of resources. Many of which cannot be built in a vacuum. 

But with a leadership coach, leaders at all levels can develop these essential skills. During times of rapid change, leadership training programs provide managers with the support and guidance to navigate challenges and grow as both leaders and individuals.

The importance of effective leadership training

From increasing the ability to adapt to change to driving year-over-year growth, leadership training programs have a range of benefits. According to BetterUp data, organizations that invest in leadership training have seen the following:

  1. 1 Increased revenue: Organizations with a strong coaching culture have significantly higher year-over-year revenue growth than companies with a low coaching culture.
  2. 2 Enhanced problem-solving abilities: Individuals are 23% better at developing novel solutions to problems.
  3. 3 Quicker recovery from setbacks: Thanks to coaching, members are 20% more likely to recover from stressful situations more quickly. This makes for more resilient teams in the long run.
  4. 4 More effective teamwork: Leadership development training improves individuals’ abilities to support, encourage, and connect with their teams.

Leadership training that drives change

In-person and virtual learning management systems, episodic training, and workshops are helpful for communicating information. But they’re not always effective at driving scalable, long-term change. Most employees fail to retain 75% of the information they receive through these methods.

But leadership training and development with ongoing coaching is different.

This is a solution that increases knowledge retention and offers a buildable approach to leveling up. The proof is in the numbers. According to BetterUp data, members report:
