Leadership development is something a lot of organisation leave to trust. They promote their best sales person into sales manager and say 'go lead'.

Leadership and management are two very different skills. Leadership is the art getting things done rather than having to do everything yourself. For some people it is a natural skill or trait. For others, it is something that has to be taught. However, it can be learned.
Leadership in the workplace is often a delicate process - you know how tricky it can be getting some people to do as you ask without them sulking. Or other times, people come back with a completely different report or outcome than you wanted. Other people almost hide because they are shy and reserved and not confident in their own abilities.

Leadership training and development is probably the hottest area in the whole training and personnel development field, because it has the biggest impact and widest effect in business improvement.
