The impact of leadership development beyond the office walls

Ever wonder if leadership development programs are worth it? We know an effective leadership development program can make you a stronger leader, and now new research suggests it can also make you a better person at home. A recent Development Dimensions International (DDI) survey of leaders found two-thirds reported that they use their new leadership skills in their personal lives as well. Skills commonly used back at home included listening more effectively (95%), maintaining the esteem of others (90%), providing positive recognition (88%), and dealing with challenging situations (85%). Participating in a leadership development training program, 360-degree assessment, or executive coaching can make you a stronger person both within and outside your office walls.
