Frontline Leader

Frontline Leaders Manage 80% of the Workforce

So make no mistake: The quality of frontline leadership can make or break your company. 

Unfortunately, most frontline leaders are unprepared for the job. Leadership is tough, and few people have a natural skill for getting work done through others.  

The good news? DDI can help. We've worked with the world's top companies to transform their managers, and we have millions of better leaders to show for it. We're ready to work by your side to do the same for your company.

Build a Learning Journey for Your Frontline Leaders

Create a learning journey to maximize the time and effectiveness of your frontline leaders. Learning journeys offer the right blend of personalized learning with group connection. For example, leaders can take assessments, pursue online learning, and coaching to boost their knowledge and insight. But they cement learning when they come together in virtual or in-person classroom session.

DDI offers proven learning journeys you can implement right away. Or we can work with you to create a completely custom learning journey.
