Driving Leadership Capability

Leadership development is vital to an organisation’s success and therefore it is no surprise that the majority of development budgets are focused in this area. However, with 49% of L&D practitioners saying L&D is not seen as a management priority, L&D need to fundamentally transform their influence and build partnerships with senior leaders in order to drive necessary change.

The brand-new report, “Driving Leadership Capability” highlights three key factors that differentiate higher achieving organisations. When combined these key factors drive more impact than when siloed; Learning Approach, Learning Technologies and the skills of L&D.

In this complimentary webinar with Towards Maturity, Laura Overton will explore, the key highlights our report including:

  • How to drive the learning agenda
  • How to effectively use learning technologies
  • And the skills required for L&D of the future

Skillsoft Leadership Development Trends Survey & Democratization of Leadership

Every organization needs capable leaders to succeed in today’s complex and constantly changing digital economy. HR.com, together with Skillsoft, recently conducted a survey of over 500 HR professionals to learn about their existing leadership development programs. How effective are their leadership development programs by leader level? Where are the biggest gaps in achieving success regarding moving the dial on leader performance? How has the performance of leaders changed over time and what are the biggest opportunities to positively influence their ability to lead? What are the existing barriers to effective leadership development and where is there room for improvement? What is the potential for improving the reach and impact of leadership development programs? And, finally, where is leadership development going in the future in terms of leader competencies, training modalities and linkages to organizational goals?

In this webcast, you will learn not only about the key findings from our research but also about critical trends that must be factored into any leadership development program. No organization can build sustainable competitive advantage without capable leaders and digital transformation is pressure-testing leaders like never before.

Learning leaders must put into motion leadership development programs that take into account the latest findings from research and the realities of today’s organizational context. Tune into the webcast in order to acquire the knowledge that will inform the future direction of your leadership development strategy and catapult it toward success.
