Leadership 480

We failed to create a 25th hour in the day. Instead, we created Leadership 480.

Based on our work with millions of leaders for five decades, we came to one simple conclusion: Time is one of the greatest barriers to great leadership. 

We can change that. Leadership 480 is DDI’s strategic framework to help you hire, promote, and develop exceptional leaders who maximize their effectiveness in every minute, every day, and every month of their careers. And it all revolves around one powerful number: 480.

Our story is about more than a program. It’s about leadership excellence, and this is part of our journey to get there.
