About DDI’s
Leadership Databank

Leadership Practices:
What’s Proven. What’s “Worth Less.”

Title: About DDI’s Leadership Databank

The proven and “worth less” practices described in this guide are based on more than a decade of research into the factors that drive leadership performance. The analytics for the data included here cross multiple studies bringing together data from over 62,000 leaders and HR professionals from more than 2,400 organizations. Each of these studies (described below) was conducted by DDI’s Center for Analytics and Behavioral Research, in conjunction with our partner organizations.

While DDI data scientists led the effort to turn this wealth of data into usable insights, we must thank the organizations that contributed their time to collect the data in the first place. Obviously, without their support we would have nothing to share.
