With the economy coming back to life, you and your team will need the skills to innovate. You’ll need to manage change but do you have the leadership necessary to take advantage of opportunities? Excellent business leaders are like athletes – they must continually work on their game. Yet, a recent study by Bersin & Associates found only half of all leaders receive any leadership skills training. That’s pretty awful news and the feedback from their teams is worst.
Kim Lamoureux, principal analyst of a leadership study for research firm Bersin & Associates, found, 'Leadership development continues to be a top priority within organizations, with 62% of respondents citing it one of the top three talent strategies for their organizations. Yet most leaders – from first-level to senior executives – fall short in many skills and capabilities. Our research shows that only 37% of respondents rate the capabilities of their top executives as excellent. First-line supervisory skills are rated even lower. Fewer than 20% respondents gave first-line supervisors an excellent performance rating.' Pretty damning statistics!

Well said, to grow we must always be learning. Unfortunately, training and development are often the first things cut when budgets are tight. Looking forward to learning from world class leaders and sharing the learning with others. Thanks for a great opportunity!
