Driving Leadership Capability

Nov 21, 2018 | Featured, General, Pulse Reports, Research

Drawing on 15 years of experience and independent data from over 700+ L&D professionals, 10,000+ learners and 200+ L&D leaders that took part in our 2018 Leadership Pulse survey, Towards Maturity and Skillsoft set to uncover real evidence to highlight where the best opportunities are to develop leadership capabilities.

In order to increase impact today, it became apparent we need future-proofed and learner-centric leadership development programs.

About this report

The brand-new report, “Driving Leadership Capability” highlights key factors that differentiate higher achievers: 

  • Leadership development done well does not just impact learning and development, but helps organisations achieve higher on their key performance indicators (KPIs) 
  • Through a blended approach to leadership training, more individuals get the opportunity to show their leadership capabilities and progress within the organisation 
  • Learning technologies play a vital role in the successful development of leadership capabilities: Organisations that use learning technologies and tools to develop their managers and leaders tend to facilitate online communities and learning groups which provides learners with continuous access to knowledge and support at times convenient to them 
  • Underpinning the successful use of learning technologies within a blended approach to leadership development is the L&D team. L&D professionals require some stand-out skills if they are to be effective in creating a learning culture that supports the development of leaders.

By exploring how companies have successfully developed their people into becoming managers and leaders, this report provides a coherent guide to help L&D professionals drive leadership capabilities within their own organisation.

Data for this report is drawn from:

  • The Towards Maturity 2018 Health Check research with over 700 L&D leaders and 10,000 learners
  • Data from 200+ leaders who took part in the 2018 Leadership Pulse survey.

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience.

In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
