Is leadership training effective?

If you learned a new language for a day, and then never spoke it again. Would that have been an effective use of your time? Unlikely.

The same is true for leadership training, for it to be effective, it needs to be put into action. True leadership development only becomes a return on investment when we see lived experience take place.

So how does a leader truly put their learnings into place?

The answer is built on two pillars;

  1. It has to be based on professional development.
  2. It also has to be grounded in personal development.

Leadership training is designed to change behaviour and shift mindsets—yet the actual training session is just the beginning of what make leadership training effective. Where the rubber really meets the road is afterwards, and this is where leaders need to be held accountable to apply the learning.

Just like any new skill, if you don’t use it, you lose it. Which is why, here at PT, our leadership training is not only designed to teach new skills, but to act as an onboarding process so your leaders feel confident that they can begin applying what they’ve learned the moment they leave the training. This critical outcomes is done not simply teaching skills, but creating a need, desire or motivation to actually apply these skills. The old saying of horses for courses is the wrong analogy. The more accurate one is you can bring a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.

We get leaders thirsty to apply their knowledge. We also ensure the framework is set up so that they feel entirely supported by ongoing conversations with their leaders on what success looks like.
