Leadership development programs are frequently used to increase this effectiveness since it has a substantial impact on the performance of businesses. The efficacy of these initiatives is still up for discussion in the literature, though. In a sample of firms, the goal of this study is to examine the relationship between leadership effectiveness and leadership development initiatives. A cross-sectional survey method and a standardized questionnaire were used to collect data from 300 people who work for business organizations. The findings revealed that 56.3% of the firms claimed to have effective leadership, and 62.5% had implemented leadership development programs. Furthermore, a significant association was found between leadership development programs and leadership effectiveness (χ2 = 12.224, p < .001). Organizations with leadership development programs were 20 times more likely to have effective leadership than those without them, according to a logistic regression analysis. The study's conclusions shed important information on the connection between leadership development initiatives and leadership efficacy and emphasize the significance of such initiatives for enhancing organizational performance. The study's limitations include a small sample size and a cross-sectional design that limits drawing conclusions about causality. Future research may corroborate these findings using larger samples and longitudinal methods. However, managers and organizations aiming to improve their leadership effectiveness by putting in place leadership development programs can use the study's results.
