Bringing Work Home Is Good For You After All

Is there an overlooked benefit to the money companies spend on developing their leaders?

To answer that question, DDI surveyed more than 300 leaders who recently participated in one or more DDI leadership development courses to see if leaders who apply their leadership skills at work are likely to apply them at home in family and personal interactions as well. Here's what we discovered:

Finding #1The good news for companies that invest in leadership development—99 percent of respondents applied the leadership skills they learned at work to their jobs.

Finding #2: The more leaders used their leadership skills on the job, the more likely they were to benefit from these skills at home. Of the 69 percent of respondents who frequently applied leadership skills learned at work to their jobs, 82 percent applied these skills outside work with some to considerable increase in effectiveness.

Finding #3Even when there were moderate opportunities to apply learned leadership skills at work, when applied at home, interactions improved. For the 30 percent who moderately applied the leadership skills learned to their jobs, 75 percent applied these skills outside work with some or considerable increase in effectiveness.
