US companies spend almost $14 billion annually on leadership, yet when surveyed, almost two-thirds of executives identified leadership development as their #1 concern (Source: Why leadership development programs fail, McKinsey Quarterly, January, 2014 issue)

The conventional approach to leader development is to offer a variety of programs and developmental events, but they’re often delivered in isolation. Individual managers may improve their skills, but the impact on business results is minimal. Companies spend millions on manager training but struggle to create a culture of performance.  Adding to these pressures, corporations worldwide are faced with a widening gap in their global leadership pipeline.

Join us as we explore the successful approach that Melanie has used to generate a culture of leader development that is still in use with former organizations ten years later. In her own words, “this is less about theory and more about practical tools, structure and processes others can use in their own organizations to help their leaders succeed.”

This program will help you improve your ability to:

  • Assess business needs and vet the critical behaviors to guide leader programs
  • Create a culture of commitment to leadership development
  • Apply a variety of measures to support true behavior change
  • Design the systems and structure for sustainable, long-term success
