What is corporate leadership training?
Corporate leadership training is an approach to developing current and future leaders on specific skills and competencies that will enable them to successfully address the human and business challenges of leading an organization and achieving optimum performance.
What should be included in leadership training?
Typically, corporate leadership training is an immersive learning experience or learning path that combines formal training with application and sustainability strategies. However, some organizations choose to start with a single or few development topics rather than introducing a complete, systematic development process. Most training programs include the following elements:
- Case studies
- Application plans
Some organizations supplement training programs with evaluation metrics and measurement, as well as learner support like one-on-one coaching or mentoring.
Why is leadership training important?
There is an urgent need for leadership development as organizations navigate complex and rapidly changing environments. The capabilities leaders need to effectively lead today’s workforce is different than it was in the past, so a training program or initiative needs to help them master the fundamentals of modern leadership. The benefits of training are far reaching:
- Enables organizations to recruit and retain high-quality individuals for leadership.
- Decreases employee turnover.
- Strengthens the leadership pipeline and prepares people for future leadership responsibilities.
- Improves organization morale.
- Increases productivity and engagement.
- Creates a more flexible and agile organization that can rapidly respond to change.
- Drives bottom-line results and gives the organization a competitive advantage.
- Enables the organization to execute on a strategy more effectively and efficiently.
Is leadership training effective?
Leadership training is effective if it meets the development needs of people in the organization and is a well-designed program, so selecting the right solution is a key to success. A custom-designed approach can certainly make training programs more effective because it is targeted to the exact needs of the learners. However, off-the-shelf solutions can also be effective, particularly with common topics.
Organizations who partner with an external vendor should ensure that the partner is highly-experienced in the industry, will spend the time necessary to identify development needs, and collaborate on a tailored solution that maximizes the training investment. The training should be targeted to the skills that they will use most often and be based on sound, adult-learning principles. Content should be research-based, built around actionable skills, and include a robust transfer and sustainability process. While some programs may have a flashy appearance and packaging, look deeper and ask about the research behind it to ensure that it will produce lasting results and be practical for leaders in the real world.
Because every organization is unique, CMOE offers training solutions in the following delivery formats:

“Influence is a process of learning from others, forming alliances, and creating shared solutions and ideas. Influence involves moving people to a solution that they currently do not see or hold. The influence process can be a subtle (subconscious) process that attracts little attention and consumes little drama or energy, or it can be more structured. It is a part of who we are and how we relate to others.”
“Feedback skills are not innate. Giving and receiving interpersonal feedback are artful skills that can be developed over time.”
