Leadership Development Solutions

Skillsoft's flexible eLearning offerings reinforce your existing leadership training programs, increase that program impact and give first-time and frontline managers the skills they need to succeed.

Organizations must invest in their leaders to keep pace with competition and they must do so in a way that is flexible, scalable and immediately actionable. Skillsoft provides solutions that drive results and provide continuous learning for leaders at all levels of the organization, including first-time and front-line managers, mid-level managers and executives.

Our approach to leadership development takes into account the following three principles:

  1. Leadership training is required for all levels: Leaders across your organization require different types of training and development. Many managers find themselves in leadership positions before they've fully developed the essential skills necessary for meaningful contributions to the success of the organization. For the majority of front-line managers and emerging leaders, having the right skill set in place is critical to their successful job performance. Those individuals need formal learning options such as self-paced courses and interactive exercises. For the smaller population of executives, having the right mindset and strategic outlook is what they need to be successful. Short, inspiring video clips and business summaries help executives coach and build collaborative relationships across the organization.
  2. Continuous learning is required to make learning stick: At Skillsoft, we believe that leadership training is not a “one and done” event. In a world where knowledge doubles every year and skills have a half-life of 2.5 to 5 years, leaders need to constantly develop their skills. And, this development must be a continuous process embedded within the workflow of the organization. Our range of learning assets allow us to provide customers with exactly that. Whether you are looking for informal learning, performance support or a more formalized program, we have a range of assets to meet every need.
  3. Learn from the best minds in business to drive results: The Skillsoft team of seasoned experts travels the globe interviewing, collaborating and filming the greatest minds in business to tap their best ideas and deliver them to you. From leading business executives, to business best-selling authors, to the top faculty from business schools, we bring you the ideas and practices of distinguished thought leaders around the world in the form of multi-modal assets that appeal to all learner types.

Many modalities and learning resources within the Leadership Development Solutions are available in a variety of languages.
