Why Leadership ACE?

Leadership effectiveness is the #1 concern for organizations of all sizes, across industries and around the world. While executives agree that leadership development is critical to future success, almost 60% of new managers never receive any training for their role. The need to prepare these managers is critical but companies are finding themselves compromising between quality, cost, and flexibility when considering a leadership development program. Until now.
