Abstract: Leadership abilities, and especially social abilities related to emotional intelligence are key factors to team management and the performance increase it generates in companies. For this reason, leadership training is an essential part of development plans in organizations. Also applying learning to work place is equally important. Evaluating learning transfer is a critical condition in order to measure training results and to assess training efficacy within organizations. This article presents the results of an analysis of the factors affecting the transfer of the learning acquired within various leadership programs, in several Spanish companies, by means of the LTSI questionnaire developed by Holton and Bates (1998, 2000). The results show a clear intention to transfer learning, but a low level of support offered by the organization so as to enable trainees to apply learning. In addition, the trainees assessed exhibit an obvious lack of personal capacity to transfer what they learned.
