A provocative question was posed at the latest Learning Cafe : Does the learning department spend disproportionate effort on leadership development? Leadership is a driver of culture, which in turn is a driver of engagement, which in turn is a driver of performance. While I support the philosophy of leadership development, however, I have doubts over some of the interventions that are deployed under that banner. The eye-watering costs and time associated with formal leadership training should be carefully evaluated in terms of ROI. Do you agree with me?
