Reaching The Summit - Professional Development Market Trend



John Kotter, Professor of Leadership at Harvard Business School states that "Most US corporations are over managed and under led. Successful corporations don’t wait for leaders to come along, they actively seek out people with leadership potential and develop them.”

Great leaders do not necessarily start off with the basic skills needed to make them great. Companies that consistently, uniformly and regularly offer classes in leadership for up-and-coming employees find that promotion decisions are a lot easier because the training has taken place and people are ready to take on added responsibility.

The statistics, however, show that most organizations have a difficult time finding the necessary talent for their organization. Eighty-two percent of HR leaders responding to a survey conducted by Development Dimensions International found that their organizations were having a hard time finding qualified leaders, which leads to the questions: what does your current leadership training initiative look like, and is it working for your company?”

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.
