Leadership training is something most e-learning professionals tackle at some point in their careers. Whether you end up designing a leadership training strategy, developing an entire program, or both (and then some), creating leadership training can be a huge challenge.
Today’s leaders need to cultivate skills and behaviors that build their resilience, deepen their understanding of themselves and others, and help them anticipate future needs for the business. All this might leave you pondering what your learners really need to know—and how your leadership training should help them get there.
When e-learning is part of your blended leadership training strategy, what you’re creating should have learners feeling challenged and engaged over the long haul. That’s why we think you’ll find a bunch of design inspiration from this roundup of leadership training projects. By snagging a few ideas from these examples and downloads, you’ll have your learners leading like a boss in no time!
