Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Training Industry, the leading research and information resource for corporate learning leaders, named Thayer to its Top 40 Leadership Training Companies List for the fifth consecutive year. Training Industry continually monitors the training marketplace for the best and innovative providers of training services and technologies.
"The 2021 Leadership Training List represents emerging or specialized leadership development companies, many of which are delivering training that enhances a leader’s learning experience through simulations, digital content and assessments,” said Danielle Draewell, market research analyst at Training Industry, Inc. "These companies strive to create unique experiences for leaders of all levels.”
Leader development plays a critical role in creating direction, culture, and connection within an organization. Despite the disruption that the COVID-19 pandemic caused, our clients continued to invest in their people when they needed it most, bringing them together in a digital setting for immersive leader development experiences where learnings could be practiced in real time.
"I completed the Thayer Values-Driven Leadership Journey and found that the level of interaction and camaraderie for a remote training far exceeded my expectations. The combination of lecture, reflections, and team interaction was well orchestrated and in sound balance,” said Richard Kovarik, VP of ESL/Aseptic Operations, HP Hood. "The combination of online and offline learning spread over multiple weeks allowed me the opportunity to understand and practice in real time the learnings during the work week that I would not have had in an intensive 1-week course. I truly believe the digital format will have a measured and long-lasting impact on my leadership abilities."
For Thayer, 2020 was a year full of lessons learned, innovation, and teamwork as we developed and inspired leaders across many organizations during a challenging time. We are honored that our clients allowed us to be part of their leader development journeys and we look forward to continuing our partnerships and developing leaders for years to come.
"The first step in developing your leadership philosophy is to determine your values—it needs to be authentic and reflect who you really are."
