This study assessed the impact of leadership development training on retention, career progression, and behavior adaptation inside a mid-sized engineering consulting firm. This study used a mixed-method design and gathered data in three phases using two surveys and one interview. These methods were used to capture participants’ reactions, learning, application, and outcomes related to the Leading from the Front training. Descriptive statistics were calculated for quantitative data, and a content analysis was used to examine the qualitative data. Overall, the leadership training was found to have an impact on retention, career progression, and behavior adaptation. Although certain limitations affected the data collection procedures, the results of this study are positive. Further study of this topic can add to these results and generate more specific insights into the direct impact of leadership training.
