Why is leadership training failing right now?

One word Mindset. Did you know that companies are spending approx $356 billion on leadership development efforts. Even more interesting is that at least 75% of companies rated their leadership programs as not very effective.

So every year significant amounts of money are actively being wasted because something fundamental has been overlooked. Just because someone attends training that does not mean their behaviour will change. For change to occur it must happen at a deeper level.

For a lot of people there are conscious blocks that prevent them from applying change because they can’t move past habits or behaviours that have had a significant impact on them.

According to research by Gottfredson & Reinab, mindset is often overlooked and yet it is the lens which will determine how that leader acts and responds to situations. If you ignore the mindset and what lies behind it, then you miss how a leader will interpret problems and opportunities.

So by focusing attention on the mindset in leadership programs and unlocking effective thinking patterns you will see a significant ROI.A case study of this was Satya Nadella who helped to triple Microsoft’s market capitalization and stock price.

When asked what the secret was he explained that embedding a growth mindset was his primary focus.

As an IMPACT Coach I work by changing thinking at a sub conscious level which means I can rapidly upgrade a fixed mindset into a growth mindset in less than 90 days.

I can help to empower new managers or managers transitioning into roles by reducing the speed to competency on a leadership mindset. After getting the foundational breakthrough I’ll work with them on coaching / upskill training as their mindset is ready to apply the learning.

If you are a leader and would like to learn more about how this could be applied to you or your team send me a message and I’ll walk you through the process.
