New York, NY, 22 October 2013– Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) announced today that Kennedy has named Deloitte a global leader in Leadership Development Consulting services in their Leadership Development Consulting Market Report 2013.

Kennedy’s Leadership Development Consulting Market report examines the strengths and weaknesses of the major providers including those from the strategy and operations, multi-services, and HR consulting segments. Additionally, the report examines the business, geographic, and industry drivers of client spending on leadership development consulting. The interplay of these drivers is illustrated in case studies that underscore the challenges of scale and scope for these providers.

“We are very proud that Kennedy acknowledged Deloitte as a global leader in Leadership Development Consulting Services,” said Brett Walsh, global Human Capital Leader, DTTL. “Increasingly we are finding leadership is becoming a business-led, board level-issue that is recognized as critical in driving business results.”  

Additional findings

  • Deloitte named a Kennedy Vanguard Leader based on breadth and depth of capabilities, one of only two leaders shown as advancing.
  • “With its view of leadership as a driver of business growth, Deloitte approaches leadership development from a strategic perspective. The conversation begins at the executive level, fully exploring the client’s operating environment, organization, culture, and performance to arrive at an understanding of the role that leadership plays in achieving growth objectives. Interventions are developed in this context to ensure meaningful business outcomes.”
  • “Deloitte has built a dedicated talent pool for delivering leadership consulting services. These consultants form a global network that is focused full time on the science and practice of leadership.
