Manager Support for Leadership Development

Gain manager buy-in to support and reinforce development

How often do you hear, “Is my boss going through this training too?”

It’s a question grounded in truth, as managers of learners play a critical role in supporting and reinforcing development efforts—and helping your organization realize a return on your L&D investment.

Do you struggle with:

  • Leaders going back to their jobs after training with little guidance on how to apply skills and monitor progress?
  • Managers not knowing how to support their team’s development?
  • Development efforts falling short because there’s no buy-in from managers?

If you're having trouble gaining manager support, imagine if you could equip them with the right tools to support your leaders and reinforce your L&D initiatives?

DDI’s leadership development systems Interaction Management® and Business Impact Leadership® are designed with content and tools for managers of leaders:
