    34: Leadership Development Programs: ROI is What Matters w/ Blake Bozarth

    I have an idea to create the greatest racing team and driver in the world and I am looking for investors.  Everyone in our current management has agreed to spend at least $14B building a car, entering races and grooming an up-and-comer for racing success.  But… about 75% of them say they’re “pretty sure” the car will blow up like a Wile E. Coyote Rocket-Sled before it even finishes a lap.  Are you in? Of course not. So why is it we keep investing in leadership development programs when 75% of business leaders expect them to fail?  It’s because they matter! We just need to get better about how we approach them.  Thanks for listening to this episode of Crafting Culture, co-hosted by Blake Bozarth, CEO of CoThryve.  To listen to this episode and many more like it, subscribe to Crafting Culture on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or follow along on our website.

    What do millennials want out of their careers? No, it’s not avocado toast or participation trophies.  Most agree that what they want most from their employers is an opportunity to grow and succeed. But most millennials feel like real leadership development is lacking in their jobs.  And to be fair, retention and engagement are lacking across the board. Over half of any given company’s employees say they’re currently looking for another job. And companies really are trying to develop their high-potential employees. But most executives admit leadership development programs targeting these high-potential millennials are failing. So, what can we do?
