Leadership A Key Area of Corporate Training
“Learning needs to be continuous, and it needs to be everywhere,” according to Karen O’Leonard, author of the Corporate Learning Factbook 2011. Noting that in 2010 companies increased their training staffs for the first time in three years, O’Leonard reported that the number of learning hours delivered by each studies also increased.
More than one-fifth of training budgets (22%) went toward leadership programs that in some cases combined formal classroom instruction with online learning, followed by one-on-one executive coaching. The coaching sessions focused on “lessons learned” and included opportunities for leaders to demonstrate how they would use their new skills.
