Are You Sending the Wrong People to Leadership Training?

Since becoming Executive Director of the Academy of Business Training, I have worked with over a hundred companies seeking to improve their performance. In the vast majority of cases, the individuals they send for training are front-line managers. The sad truth is the people that need to be attending are the policy makers and senior managers because the company's poor performance is not due to some failing on the part of their front-line workers but, instead, policies or poor execution of those policies by managers. You cannot expect front-line employees to deliver superior performance when company policies and senior managers fail them.
