Over 90 percent of CEOs are planning to increase investment in leadership development because they see it as the single most important human-capital issue their organizations face. Businesses in the United States spend close to $170 billion on leadership training each year. Yet, after training is complete, only 15 percent of the skills taught are applied on the job. That means American businesses waste more than $144 billion dollars annually on leadership training that doesn’t stick.
