Return on Investment in Leadership Development

our methodology3.png

We have noted that during economic challenges, investments in leadership development tend to be cut despite universal recognition in the importance of developing leaders.


Therefore, the justification for the investment in leadership development programs needs to be supported by quantifiable metrics that make sense to key decision-makers. The most valuable return on investment in leadership development occurs when the right development opportunity is provided to the right person at the right time and in the right way.

To maximize the ROI, we believe organizations need to:

  1. Have a clear and integrated roadmap for Leadership Development;

  2. Make thoughtful selection of participants based on Individual Development Plans;

  3. Ensure the design of the training is based on good diagnosis and understanding of the individual and business needs;

  4. Include a robust post-training plan that includes practice and support from a coach/mentor;

  5. Understand the trade-offs of doing local, regional and global training.


At Linkage, we know how to measure the ROI of your leadership development dollars spent, using our proven performance metrics and assessment processes. We are committed to upholding our principle of designing and delivering leadership development interventions with the focus on delivering real, measurable impacts for your organization.
