Where’s the Evidence for Leadership Training Outcomes?
About $12 billion annually is spent on leadership programs specifically on top leaders of the organization. (Jack Zenger, Forbes, 2012). However, only 20% of the skills or knowledge taught in leadership training programs is transferred into new leadership habits. If this statistic is true, then what are the top reasons leadership training investments are NOT transferred into sustained, supported permanent leadership habits?
