This article in the Huffington Post by Anthony Abbatiello of Deloitte caught our eye, and not just because of the provocative title, "The DEATH of the Leadership Program." Abbatiello argues that "the construct of the leadership program is evolving rapidly...and that is probably for the best" and we couldn't agree more. Abatiello also says,
