Why Travel for Leadership Training?

Because Going Away Really Brings It Home

Getting away from the office for professional development is never easy. Travel to an offsite leadership training location is an investment of time and money.

But face-to-face leadership development is effective, and worth it — for your sake and for your organization’s. And you can be confident that the impact of your investment can be measured.

The below infographic tells the story of how the anonymity and safety of our flagship Leadership Development Program (LDP)® offers a chance to get away from the workplace — and then come back, completely transformed and ready to take on the big challenges.

Here’s data from our over 50,000 alumni, who all traveled for offsite training, about their experiences at LDP:

We’re often told by graduates that getting out of the office allows them to do the near impossible — disconnect and focus on themselves. The anonymity and safety of our flagship Leadership Development Program (LDP)® offers participants the perfect backdrop to reflect, engage, enjoy, and most importantly, shatter their comfort zone in the name of personal and professional development. In other words, going away really brings it home, and the results prove it.Infographic: “I absolutely love the format. What amazed me about the process is the sheer variety. Your whole time there is spent with people from all kinds of industries, which brings so many fresh perspectives.” 98% of our participants feel increased appreciation for different styles and perspectives.Infographic: “You do not get this from a normal leadership class. It was amazing seeing what the process broke open for people. My personal breakthrough was understanding my insecurities were holding me back. Everybody got something unique from it.” 98% of our participants feel increased self-awareness.Infographic: “It should be called self-discovery. LDP didn’t teach me to be a better leader, but instead how to be better to myself, which in turn, made me a much better leader.” 96% of our participants feel like more effective leaders.Infographic: “You leave LDP excited, ready to implement changes in your organization and take them as far as they can go. Sometimes you’ll attend a leadership course and there’s a specific way they intend you to feel and you leave discouraged.” 95% of our participants feel like they can more effectively contribute to their organization’s success.Infographic: “You could see the impact almost immediately. My CCL coach helped me see what tools I could apply at work and where I could be most effective. Most people in my group had never received a ‘real’ coaching session before.” 98% of our participants feel like they apply what they learned at work.Infographic: “This class — It rekindles the fire. It reconnects you with yourself. If everyone could go — I’d say absolutely go. In the workplace, a lot of people just aren’t engaged.” 91% of our participants feel more engaged as an employee.Infographic: “It was so much more than a leadership course. I came back to my workplace completely invigorated and validated. I doubled down, started pushing the limits, and effecting change in a real way.” 88% of our participants feel more invested in the success of their organizations.Infographic: Why travel for leadership training?
