Our Vision: Leadership Development That Drives Results
Whether you want to increase employee retention or build profitability, great leadership in an organization matters. At Zenger Folkman, our research suggests leaders are the primary factor behind employee commitment, productivity and loyalty. In addition, these factors impact a company’s bottom-line, meaning leadership, good or bad, can drastically affect an organization’s success.

That’s why Zenger Folkman is dedicated to providing research-proven leadership training programs to companies all over the world, ensuring that their leaders are extraordinary—and drive extraordinary results.

Strengths-Based Leadership Development
Too often, leadership development and training programs focus on what a leader or performer does wrong. At Zenger Folkman, we focus our leadership development programs on building strengths. Our research shows that leaders who create action-oriented development plans to build their strengths, rather than fix weaknesses, are more likely to become GREAT leaders who deliver extraordinary results. These results include:

    • 4.8 times higher profits

    • 70% higher levels of employee engagement and productivity

    • 50% less turnover

    • 40% higher levels of customer satisfaction
