Tracks: Leadership

Since 2020, many organizations have implemented flexible and remote work practices, requiring a different way of leading. In other organizations, personnel have been through some form of trauma during the last two years. Leaders have not only experienced this but are also expected to support and lead their staff through these experiences. It’s up to us as learning professionals to ensure that our leaders have the resources and skills they need to take on these new challenges.

In this interactive session, we will discuss what new skills our leaders need in order to be successful in the current work environment and offer tips that will help ensure implementation of these skills. You will hear about new leadership skills that have been identified through research and focus on areas including how to lead a team remotely and how to support mental wellness. We’ll explore reflective questions to help you clearly articulate the problem you are trying to fix and the organizational impact you expect as a result. Finally, you will investigate effective methods to successfully incorporate this content into your leaders’ busy days.

This session is specifically designed to allow you time to reflect on your current state and collaborate with other attendees, share ideas, and hear what other learning leaders are doing in this space.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What new skills are required for leadership going forward
  • To identify gaps in your leadership training
  • How to incorporate new skills effectively
  • What other learning leaders are currently doing well or have learned along the way
