Why is Leadership Development Important?

Most leaders are promoted because they are technical experts, NOT because they are particularly skilled at managing and leading others. Leadership is a set of skills that can be learned and strengthened over time. Organizations benefit from having leaders who are able to craft and articulate a vision, communicate effectively, and positively inspire, motivate, develop and engage their teams.
