LEADERSHIP IS A PROCESS OF SOCIAL INFLUENCE, WHICH MAXIMISES THE EFFORTS OF OTHERS TOWARDS THE ACHIEVEMENT OF A SHARED GOAL.

In a recent study by the Corporate Leadership Council of the Corporate Executive Board, many organisations indicated that they were moving to increase their investment in leadership development. However, less than 20% of study respondents either agreed or strongly agreed that their "Programmes have delivered the Leader Capabilities Needed by the Organisation."
According to the CLC research, the root causes for the historic poor returns on leadership development investments are attributable to three things:
1. Disconnected Strategy: Leadership Strategy is not integrated with business strategy.
2. Misaligned Outcomes: Leadership outcomes and metrics are not connected with business outcomes.
3. Uncoordinated HR Activities: Leadership activities are not integrated with other HR activities.
The Positive Leadership approach which states that desired outcomes are only realised when the Values of Positive Leadership™ are aligned with business strategy is one response to the raising the returns on leadership development.
