Reaching The Summit - Professional Development Market Trend



You've always felt that the professional development of your leaders is crucial to your team's long term success. Here is some evidence to support that belief.

Research by investment analyst Laurie Bassi, founder of Knowledge Asset Management, demonstrates a link between employee development efforts and an organization's stock market performance. A five-year, back tested study of companies that made a significant investment in employee development showed a strong correlation between training investment and economic value added (a performance measure most directly linked to creation of shareholder wealth).

Beyond productivity enhancements,  professional development investments have also been demonstrated to contribute to increased employee retention. It's not difficult to understand the value of increased retention, simply imagine the impact of losing a key member of your leadership team.

The demands on your leaders continue to increase. The bar is going up … what are your 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.
