Top 10 Leadership Development Training/coaching Companies - 2020

In today’s work environment, change is continuously driven by Industry 4.0—the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies—and people are trying to keep up. While technology has evolved exponentially over the past 20 years, people's productivity has remained relatively flat. Most CEOs believe technology will drive a higher value than people will.

What does this mean for all of us?

Like Terminator and Matrix films, the reality is that human capital is indispensable. Companies know this, given their continuous growing investment in leadership development over the past two decades. Yet over this same period, confidence in leaders has steadily declined. Clearly, traditional methods of development from the past no longer work for today's HR leaders and the challenges they face in this new world of work. Thus, it is time for leadership development to evolve.

Similarly, leadership can be observed as a capacity serving to transform ways of seeing, thinking, and acting so that the group may adapt to the various challenges confronting it. But leadership is a unique human endeavor. And it's a complex one. To assist and provide a clear perspective, our distinguished panel, comprising key decision-makers and experts along with CIOReview, has shortlisted some of the most effective Leadership Development Consulting/ Services, Training and Coaching Companies and Solution Providers. We hope this issue helps business leaders develop the skills that make them successful at every level of leadership—from emerging leaders up to the CEO, offering innovative leadership development solutions that support talent strategy for the future.
