Business and industry have known for decades that leadership development affects organizational effectiveness. Employers that deliberately focus on building leadership capacity in their workforce outperform peers by up to 13 times in key bottom line outcomes (Boatman et al, 2012).

Applying these same strategies to target "the people who develop people" is critical to increasing retention, building morale, and achieving goals.
