Amid uncertain times, like the disruption caused by COVID-19, outdated management practices can only lead to short-term solutions. The leaders of tomorrow need to engage themselves in more refined leadership development programs and training that drives improved communication and team building in order to succeed in the post-pandemic world.
“Snackable” learning is an emerging trend in that regard. It is easy to schedule and connects to a leader’s current needs. Users can select a specific challenge, such as “resistance to change,” and get customized training modules only for that challenge. Users can also see what other leaders have done in response and what their outcomes were. It also points the user toward related research and resources.
This is but one of the examples. Driven by such innovative ideas, the corporate leadership training market share is predicted to increase by $18.59 billion by 2026, with the industry’s growth pace accelerating at a CAGR of 9.51 percent.
