How to Get More ‘Bang For Your Buck’ From Your Leadership Development Programme

I guess the first question to answer here is why invest in a leadership development programme at all? With the cost of living skyrocketing and inflation showing little signs of slowing down, organisations could be forgiven for wanting to cut back on costs in favour of more business critical activities. Sadly, when these things happen, one of the things that’s usually first to go is the investment in learning.

But here’s the thing; with any economic change, comes a change in strategy and a change in strategy still needs one thing - great leaders to deliver it! 

Choosing to invest in a Leadership Development Programme is a big commitment for any organisation. Getting the right foundations in place from the beginning is essential to helping deliver the right outcomes and avoid it becoming a nice day out with a hefty price tag! After all, time’s money right? This is why getting the right learning provider is critical and where Redsky can help. 

In this article we’ll share with you 3 ways we can help you avoid the common pitfalls of leadership programmes so that you can get more bang for your buck when investing in leadership.

The Relationship

To really land any learning programme there needs to be a strong relationship with the learning provider, employer and learner. Every great relationship starts with building trust and a key aspect of this is getting a clear understanding each other’s needs and what’s important form the get go. 

Redsky will work with you to build these solid foundations to ensure we really understand your business and the outcomes you want to deliver and design your programme to meet these. Our success is your success so we see our work with you as a long term partnership that continues long after the programme finishes.

Keeping it Relatable

For learners to really engage in learning they need to know what’s in it for them. If they’re going to take time out of their day, they need to know it’s going to be worth the effort.

At Redsky we get it and we want to ensure that all of our programmes reflect your business and the real challenges you’re facing right now so that the content’s relatable and leaders can quickly apply what they’re learning, in the right context to drive the right outcomes.

Staying Connected

Communication is key, and we recognise things and priorities change. We don’t operate a one size fits all approach, we bespoke our programmes to meet your needs so if we need to adapt anything, then we’ll do just that. 

We’ll also stay engaged with you through the programme to help you assess and measure the difference the programme is making so that you can clearly see a return on your investment.
