Trend Tracker

Which leadership practices really work?
Trend Tracker

DDI estimates that organizations spend $3,157,894 per hour on leadership development. But are those dollars being invested wisely? That question is at the heart of Leadership Practices: What’s Proven. What’s “Worth Less.” This research draws on DDI’s Leadership Databank, which includes data from over 62,000 leaders and HR professionals from more than 2,400 organizations worldwide. Its aim is to identify the truly proven leadership practices, as confirmed by research, as well as those that are “worth less.” Here are some of the research revealed.

Proven Practice: Promoting More Generational Diversity

We found that aggressive-growth organizations, such as those in the high-tech industry, have a significantly higher proportion of Millennials in leadership positions (30 percent) than organizations with cautious growth (25 percent) or no to low growth (21 percent).
