Leadership is the #1 driver of culture and employee engagement. Gallup research indicates that over 70% of the variance in engagement is tied to who the manager is (i.e., people join companies, but leave a boss). Conference Board research shows that “developing the next generation of leaders” is a top five priority among CEOs. And yet Gallup also famously stated, “Leadership development might be one of the most significant loss-making ventures in modern business.” It is well known that leadership skills are rarely applied back on the job. This “Knowing Doing Gap” results in “scrap learning” rate of 45-85%.
Additionally, front line “millennial managers” are rejecting sage-on-the-stage approaches to training and Conference Board/DDI research shows they are demanding management training that is (1) personalized, (2) coaching, and (3) on demand. While human executive coaching solves these problems, with costs from $500 to $2,000 per month per manager, these solutions are never rolled out to those who need them most: new front-line managers. LEADx scales and sustains leadership development, with AI-powered hyper-personalized 100%-digital leadership coaching. Managers use it, like it, and it leads to measurable results.
