Why is The Leadership Challenge the best leadership development program for me?

Because effective leaders = engaged employees

Research shows that employees cite their relationship with their leaders—especially their direct manager or supervisor—as one of the most important contributing factors to their own level of effectiveness and engagement at work. Studies also clearly confirm that employing research-based practices and a time-tested framework for developing leaders, from the front line to the C-Suite, is essential for a healthy and productive organizational culture to flourish.

Engaging leaders at every level—making leadership everyone’s business—develops a deep bench of top quality leaders who speak the same language of leadership, who support and encourage each other to do their best. Together, this cadre of exceptional leaders makes a profound impact on engagement and results, and on sustaining the kind of open and caring workplace that allows every employee to deliver exemplary service to stakeholders, customers, and to each other.
