Developing new leaders: Improving your ROI for frontline leadership development

Sam Russell

By: Sam Russell – September 2016

Are you concerned your frontline leaders don’t have the skills to perform their roles effectively?

Do you have high turnover at the frontline as a direct result of poor leadership?

Do you send your frontline leaders on training programs but don’t seem to be getting results?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then you are by no means on your on as poor frontline leadership is routinely sighted as a major issue in a high percentage of Australian organisations and as one of the main causes of low workforce engagement levels and lost productivity.
