Crossknowledge Among the “Vendor SmartList™” of Software Solutions That Help Build Better Leadership Brains

 A new report from industry analyst firm Amalgam Insights positions CrossKnowledge among the nine leaders in software solutions designed to effectively train the hard skills, people skills, and situational awareness of leadership.

The Vendor SmartList™, authored by Amalgam Insights Research Fellow Todd Maddox, Ph.D., takes on added significance given the increasing number of news reports about inappropriate conduct by corporate leaders or the lack of trained behavioral skills among a company’s employees.

“Companies must continuously educate their workers, top to bottom, about the ‘what,’ ‘how,’ and ‘feel’ of effective leadership by leveraging brain science to ensure that their behavior doesn’t land them in trouble,” Todd Maddox says. “CrossKnowledge’s Path to Performance uses digital solutions that can combine with facilitator training and a dedicated dashboard to provide effective leadership training paths.

We believe our positioning in the Vendor SmartList™ by Amalgam Insights confirms our unique approach and highlights our innovation in the market,” said Danish Khan, Product Marketing Manager, CrossKnowledge. “We are committed to providing our clients with solutions that not only ensure that they fill this critical skills gap, but that they also generate sustainable transformation. Our innovative and engaging learning experiences deliver results, and that’s our ultimate goal.
