Want Leadership Training that Actually Works?

According to the American Society of Training and Development, U.S. businesses spend more than $170 billion dollars annually on leadership-based curriculum.  The return on investment (ROI) for most of this training is small.  Why?  87% of the learning from one-time programs is gone in 90 days.
Want to have leadership training that pays off?  Work with training and development companies that focus on creating habits and making the leadership behaviors part of your corporate culture. 
Make sure the training is phased, focuses on practicing and creating habits and includes coaching.  Make sure your program is at least 6 months long (preferably 2 years or more and ongoing).  This is the amount of time it takes to change behavior and create habits and this is also where your highest return on investment per training dollar spent will come.

It’s 2% knowing and 98% doing.  Find a training provider that focuses on the doing part and take your time.  The payoff is worth it.
