For the fourth year, Training magazine and Wilson Learning Worldwide have teamed up to conduct the Annual Leadership Survey, which focuses on creating effective leaders and preparing the next generation of leaders.

The results of this survey indicate that high-performing organizations differ from lower performers in terms of the focus of their efforts, the involvement of executives, their cross-generational mentoring, and how well learning is designed for the next generation of leaders. Key among these differences is recognition that effective leadership involves both skill and character development.

In this webinar, we will cover the specific actions that high-performing organizations are taking to develop both the heart and skills of leaders and strengthen their organization’s future.

Join us for this complimentary webinar as Lorri Freifeld, Editor-in-Chief of Training magazine, and Dr. Michael Leimbach, VP of Global Research and Development for Wilson Learning, discuss important findings from this study and examine the specific actions that high-performing L&D organizations are taking to advance their leadership development efforts.
In this session, we’ll explore:
  • What organizations are doing to develop skills and character
  • The best practices of high-performing leadership development functions
  • Steps to strengthen leadership development efforts to prepare for the next generation of leaders 

Join us for this webinar to hear firsthand insights gained from this research study.
