DDI MultiLevel Subscription

Develop Mid-Level Leaders and Early Executives

The higher the leadership role, the tougher the challenges. As leaders advance, they often struggle to move away from day-to-day tactical leadership and influence at a higher level. Under mounting stress, their derailing personal tendencies start to come out. And even seasoned directors, VPs, and general managers may struggle to manage their personal impact.

That’s why we created the DDI MultiLevel Subscription. It includes all the advanced content you need to develop experienced leaders as they take on more nuanced challenges. Plus, they get access to everything in a Foundation Subscription to make sure they don't have any gaps.

Advance Leaders for Higher Impact

Why do so many high-performing leaders fail at the mid-level? Often, it's because they rely on what made them successful in the past. We designed our MultiLevel Subscription to help these leaders build on foundational skills like coaching and EQ for success at a higher level. Plus, we help them focus on newly important skills such as influencing, accelerating change, translating strategy into results, and more.

We designed our content with the unique needs of mid-level leaders in mind. Our approach includes more peer learning sessions, time to connect, case studies, and ultra-personalization. And because leaders also get access to everything included in our Foundation Subscription, you don’t have to worry about gaps in their development.

Personal Insights Integrated into Live Learning

As leaders rise in the ranks, their personal impact expands quickly. But so does their stress. That’s when their personal derailers tend to come out, undermining their success.

With DDI’s MultiLevel Subscription, you can help leaders gain deep self-awareness to manage their personal impact. Built on DDI’s long history as a market leader in assessments, we created a Personality Insights Inventory specifically for mid-level leaders.

All leaders have to do is spend about 15 minutes answering short questions. They then receive personal insights into how their natural leadership style helps or hinders their success. We also weave the results into many of our live Impact Sessions. Before attending, leaders get a unique report with insights about how their style may impact their approach to a specific skill.

Build One Common Leadership Language

A strong leadership culture depends on having a shared set of expectations and accountabilities. Everyone needs to know what great leadership looks like. And they need to know what to expect from their direct reports and their peers.

While many companies initially focus development at the frontline, higher level leaders must understand and reinforce the right behaviors. And they need to align their own approach to the same set of behaviors.

With a DDI MultiLevel Subscription, you can scale your training across levels, while staying aligned. That way, you're doing more than training individuals. You're creating a culture.
