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
