Leadership is tough. We make it easier.
Leadership is a uniquely human endeavor. It’s a skill that must be learned, practiced, and improved every day. But that’s a tall order for busy leaders and HR teams. Our job is to make it easier.
We create effective leadership development experiences that are proven to change behavior, giving leaders the tools to practice and apply new habits in their everyday interactions. Our Leadership Development Subscriptions help your leaders accelerate their careers not just today, but over time as they take on new and bigger challenges.
Because with DDI, we’re not just about learning. It’s about changing behavior to get better business results.

DDI Develops Leaders Differently
We base our approach to development on 50 years of science and research on the practice of leadership.
Our experiences are designed to meet leaders where they are, create a personal connection, and focus on the areas of highest impact. We meet these goals by following five high-impact design principles to ensure that all of our experiences are: Relevant. Personalized. Immersive. Trusted. And deeply human.
The result? Better leaders who get better business results.
Make Leadership Development a Way of Work
Leaders don’t develop in a day. It takes time and practice. With DDI Leadership Development Subscriptions, you have complete flexibility to develop your leaders when and how you want.
But this isn’t just about giving your leaders access to content or training sessions. It’s about truly helping them change their behavior, day by day.
A subscription also gives you your very own Strategic Learning Team—a team of experts working by your side to deliver success that’s aligned with your unique business goals.
Our leadership development program has supercharged our transition towards becoming a learning organization, enabling our leaders to experience the value of learning whilst simultaneously uplifting our leadership capability. WIN:WIN

Award-Winning Leadership Development Courses
The heart of our leadership development experiences is our award-winning course content. Whether your leaders need to learn virtually or in person, our live learning experiences connect leaders with one another to build and practice skills.
Or you can help your leaders quickly build skills with on-demand online courses. Plus, you can use our microcourses to support short bursts of learning to reinforce and expand leadership skills.
Most importantly, we build all our content on proven foundational models and concepts. That way, you can easily mix and match to create blended learning journeys that meet your leaders in the moment, while maintaining consistency.
I personally trained nearly 1,000 managers from all over…during this time, I have been stopped in malls, airports, hotels, and in the street by scores of past participants and thanked for DDI-inspired, life-changing experiences.

Develop Exceptional Facilitators
The people who train your leaders can make or break your leadership program. While you can always choose to use DDI’s facilitators, many of our clients want to build the skills of their in-house team. That’s why we offer a world-class facilitator certification program to build the skills and confidence of your program leaders.
With DDI certification, your facilitators become experts at delivering engaging, memorable sessions that help leaders truly change and grow. These lifelong skills also apply outside of DDI programs, enabling your team to facilitate better meetings, workshops, and learning sessions throughout their career. Plus, we offer resources to help you brush up your skills as new challenges arise.
