  • 5. The aim of the research study was to explore whether the particular leadership development program has any effect at the individual and organizational levels
  • 6. Research Questions  Q1: Has the leadership development program had any effect on behavior outcomes of trainees comparing with non- trainees?  Q2: Has the leadership development program had a positive influence on financial outcomes of trainees compared to non-trainees?
  • 7. Research Sample & Outcomes  Participants were regional mid-level managers (N = 44) of the local company “Fortune Invest”, an agency of financial services (since 1999)  Six leadership behavior competencies were referred to the individual level as subjective expertize outcomes. We used self-reported scores on Leadership Steps Assessment, a tool developed by Prof. J. Clawson (2000)  The financial sales results were attributed to the organizational level as objective financial outcomes. We used company records of annual sales results
  • 8. Research Strategy  A quantitative approach was used to found statistically significant conclusions about a sample through testing whether the independent variables (the leadership intervention) cause an effect on the dependent variables (two different outcomes)  Pretest-Posttest Control Group Design: we measured the outcomes before and after training intervention and compared an experimental group with a control one
  • 9.  To compare behavioral characteristics of participants, we conducted two t-test administrations, (1) Within the groups, for dependent samples (2) Between the groups, for independent samples  To identify relationships between sales outcomes as a dependent variable and training intervention as an independent variable, we employed two linear regression models, (1) Simple linear regression (Model 1) (2) Multiple linear regression (Model 2) Data Analysis
  • 10.  Formal training is the foundation of contemporary leadership development programs (Conger, 1999)  Action Learning is a tool to apply knowledge and skills gained during formal training; it is learning through doing (Day, 2000)  Networking assisted in establishing of effective communications with others is the only practice, which leads individual leader’s development to collective leadership development (Day, 2000) Interventions for Leadership Development
