Reaching The Summit - Professional Development Market Trend



A Society for Human Resource Management employee development survey published in April 2005 provided startling results. 

In almost all instances, Employee Development is deemed to be of strategic importance as it increases the likelihood of retaining talent and equips the organization for growth.

However, formalized avenues for development are not the norm. 83% of development programs are informal, unstructured and not measured.

As a consequence, random results from professional development are the norm because “Most organizations lack the mechanisms necessary to assure their investments bring the anticipated return.”

You recognize that that the demands on your leaders continue to increase. The bar is going up … and you may not be comfortable with the plans to deal with these challenges.


Cognition Network's service is directed at proactively equipping leadership teams for the challenges they face by challenging each other to keep raising the bar, increasing the level of trust and transparency, encouraging fresh perspectives, breakthrough ideas and innovative solutions, demonstrating a bias for strategic change, reawakening creativity, developing a shared sense of urgency, enhancing the team’s level of cohesion and collaboration along with creating a forum for validating decisions.

Your leadership team will show demonstrable progress in their leadership and professional development. Members create and execute development plans that support organizational objectives and address their needs for soft, technical & business skills utilizing a library of development planning and execution resources. Cognition Network’s delivery model overcomes the weaknesses of traditional approaches creating accountability to the executive sponsor, other workgroup members and to the members themselves. Accelerated leadership development takes place through use of advanced problem solving and issue management methods.
