How Leadership Development Impacts an Organization

At Zenger Folkman, we’ve studied hundreds of organizations to understand the impact of leadership development.

After years of research and analysis, we have found that organizations with extraordinary leaders—that is, leaders who performed at or above the 90th percentile in more than one core competency—see a dramatic change in relation to these key business issues:

  • Employee Productivity – Extraordinary leaders are simply able to get more from their employees. In turn, when employees work harder, organizations achieve greater success.
  • Inspiring Leadership – When an employee feels inspired and motivated, they invariably increase their capacity, output and innovation. With more inspired employees, any organization can find success.
  • Leadership Effectiveness – Let’s face it—leadership matters. When leaders understand what they need to become extraordinary, their capacity to help others increases. What does that mean for the organization? Fewer problems and more achievement.
  • Profitability – While we may not always think in these terms, extraordinary leadership has a tremendous effect on the profitability of any organization. Since a great leader can get more out of their employees than an average or poor leader, extraordinary leadership ties directly to the bottom-line success of any organization.

Best of all, Zenger Folkman partners with you to create a solution that not only fits your business and your budget, but fulfills your expectations for success.

In addition to these key areas, extraordinary leaders affect a number of other areas, including employee engagement and commitment, customer satisfaction, product innovation and employee loyalty. What does that mean for your organization?
