CCL defines effective leadership in terms of outcomes – what leaders and followers have done to help an organization set direction, achieve alignment and inspire commitment. For appropriate outcomes to happen, though, individuals need appropriate competencies. How do you determine the specific strengths needed to succeed in today’s workplace? How do you know where your leaders already excel and which competencies they need to strengthen or develop?

CCL Trend Research Reports use data from our 360-degree feedback assessments (e.g., Benchmarks® for Managers) to explore the key competencies valued most in various industries, market sectors and cultures around the globe. With the rich insights each report provides, you will be equipped to craft more effective leadership solutions and to deliver results that matter to the success of your organization and its leaders.
