They need to carve out a clear vision and strategy; to motivate and inspire; to make tough decisions; to be top-notch communicators; and to serve as models of ethics, accountability, and transparency for their organizations. Leadership training and executive development are top priorities for training managers. In a recent Bersin & Associates survey, 37 percent of respondents listed leadership training as the first or second training priority for their organizations. The Ken Blanchard Companies (Blanchard) is a pioneer in the field of leadership training. The company was one of the first training providers to recognize the trend toward more dispersed work units and to design learning that meets those needs. It set out to develop a program that would not only blend different learning modalities but would also blend the company’s tradition of “high touch” customer service with the high-tech benefits of a new learning management system (LMS).
