Business Impact Leadership

Execute Strategy Through Culture

Mid-level leaders are in a tough spot. They’re the make-it-happen people. It's up to them to translate business strategy at the top into execution at the frontline. And even harder? They need to create a culture where people want to do the work - and do it well. No wonder so many of them end up feeling flattened and burnt out. Enter DDI's Business Impact Leadership program.

Business Impact Leadership is a development program specially designed to help mid-level leaders tackle the unique challenges of their role. With active learning, peer networking, self-assessment, and on-the-job application, your mid-level leaders are sure to succeed.

Address Four Key Challenges 

When a leader steps into their mid-level role, they suddenly get hit with a lot of new challenges. At DDI, we've identified four key challenges that make or break their success. We've designed our courses around those key areas:

  • Driving performance in a changing world 
  • Horizontal integration in a complex organization 
  • Leading and developing talent 
  • Making tough decisions

It wasn’t just training on leadership or training on transitions, but it was training in the context of the real business challenges and real business relationships … The combination really was the key to this program’s success.

Unique Learning Needs

We know that higher level leaders need more from development. They need to think strategically. They need to develop stronger networks. And most of all, they need to connect their leadership decisions to business impact. 

Business Impact Leadership is designed to address these unique learning needs. The program connects leaders and gives them a safe environment to share their concerns. On top of that, the program helps them develop self-awareness and the right mindset of growth. And most importantly? It gets them ready for the next big job ahead.

Deeply Qualified Facilitators

Facilitator credibility has a major impact on course quality. And that's especially true at higher levels. DDI's facilitators go through a rigorous certification process designed for senior leaders.

While our facilitators can come to you, we can also certify your own people to deliver the courses. That way, they can provide additional insights into your unique business context and what it takes to succeed at higher levels.
