Skillsoft Announces Spring Live Events Schedule

Best-Selling Authors and Academic Leaders Adam Grant, John Maxwell, and Amy Edmondson Share Insights on Building a Collaborative Work Environment

Who: Skillsoft, the global leader in eLearning.

What: Skillsoft announced the spring schedule for its upcoming Live Events, a series of live, interactive webcast events featuring cutting-edge thought leaders who share insights on business strategies and leadership to drive organizational performance. The Live Events series serves as a powerful complement to an organization’s management and leadership development programs.

When:

  • Originals: How Non-Conformists Rule the World by Adam Grant, Wharton’s top-rated teacher and a New York Times writer – February 2 at 12 p.m. EST: Drawing on his blockbuster new book, Originals, Grant will explore how anyone can get better at recognizing and championing new ideas in organizations, how to overcome fear and doubt in putting forth new ideas, and how to build corporate cultures that welcome diverse perspectives and honest feedback.
  • The 5 Levels of Leadership by John Maxwell, #1 New York Times bestselling author, coach, and speaker – March 15 at 12 p.m. EST: Leadership does not come from your title. In fact, being named to a position is only the first and lowest of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than a boss people are required to follow, you must master the ability to inspire and build a team that produces not only results, but also future leaders. During this event, based on the 5 Levels of Leadership paradigm in his book, Developing the Leader Within You, Maxwell will explain how leaders can understand and increase their effectiveness.
  • Teaming: How Organizations Learn, Innovate, and Compete in the Knowledge Economy by Amy Edmondson, the Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School – May 9 at 12 p.m. EST: In most organizations, the work that produces value for customers is carried out by teams, and increasingly, by flexible team-like entities. Organizations can thrive, or not, based on the success or failure of these flexible entities. In this talk, Edmondson will outline how leaders can shape teams by encouraging reflection, creating psychological safety, and overcoming defensive interpersonal dynamics that inhibit the sharing of ideas.

Where: Live Events are archived and will be available after the initial webcast. For more information about subscribing to the Leadership Channel, please visit https://www.skillsoft.com/business-solutions/leadership-development.asp.
