Why should all employees participate in leadership training?

With the fast pace, digitization, and globalization that drives business today, it’s essential to provide leadership training for all employees to ensure a culture of shared leadership and employee engagement. Your company’s responsiveness and decision-making must adapt to meet the challenges of retiring executives and overloaded employees. Employees who are given a say in decisions are more engaged and motivated. By providing leadership training to all employees, your organization can work to retain those with high performance and discover those with high potential.

There are many levels of leadership within an organization. When all are present, your company thrives.

  • Self-leadership – an individual achieving a goal
  • Direct leadership – an individual motivating another individual to achieve a goal
  • Group leadership – an individual motivating a group to reach a goal
  • Executive leadership – an individual or group motivating an organization or major department to achieve a goal

A good leader begins by creating a vision and setting the direction toward the desired outcome or result. They are, at all times, responsible for the achievement of the result, and they get it done by influencing and inspiring others and empowering them to achieve results. In the end, a good leader is responsible for the result, no matter what the outcome may be. All individuals can learn to lead, and in today’s business world, your company can’t afford to ignore the leadership potential of all employees.
