Who We Are
Leadership USA is a membership organization that offers high-quality executive education for leaders of our member companies, via a monthly live learning event with world-class instructors, who present on diverse topics.
We function as an outsourced training resource for small-to-medium-sized companies and as a supplement to established leadership programs within larger corporations. Since it can be cost-prohibitive and time-consuming for companies to bring instructors in-house each month, we bring them to our member community.
Why LEADERSHIP USA?
- 69% of Learning & Development professionals say that talent is the number one priority in their organizations. Over 25% are expecting a budget increase in 2017 for Learning & Development (L&D) programs.
- 66% of L&D pros say L&D is centralized within their organization. L&D professionals at smaller organizations are more likely to focus on training technical skills, while those at larger companies say career development and soft skills are more important.
- 80% of L&D pros agree that developing employees is top-of-mind for the executive team.
- 50% of L&D pros are challenged to get employees to make time for L&D. With the influx of technology in the workplace, modern learners are demanding more modern formats for learning.
- Less than 25% are willing to recommend their program to peers.
