In light of current global business trends, strategies, and goals, it is increasingly apparent that leadership is no longer just a function for senior executives. Kotter (1988) believes that even lower-level managerial, professional, and technical employees require leadership capabilities to function adequately. Because of increased demand for leadership skills at multiple levels, leadership training is among the most common types of organizational training in demand today.
At the core of leadership training is the issue of transfer (Goldstein & Sorcher, 1974), or the ability to behaviorally reproduce or transfer what is learned in training to one’s job. Leadership training design must link learning to application. Unfortunately, not all leadership training programs are designed to produce substantive behavioral changes. In fact, researchers have indicated that only a fraction of the skills and knowledge learned during training are really transferred to the job (Baldwin & Ford, 1988; Burke & Baldwin, 1999).
