Leadership Skills for Learning and Development Professionals

Primus Hotel Sydney

Hide Section - About the Event
Learning and development professionals own a unique place within their organisation, tackling the complexities of aligning workforce capability with organisational goals, through sourcing and implementing the perfect training methodologies and technologies. Frameworks and forecasts form the backbone of any successful learning and development agenda, but in order to raise this to the next level and emerge as a true leader, learning and development professionals need to expand their knowledge base and master a new set of leadership skills.

This 2-day interactive workshop will give delegates the tools they need to effectively guide and support their team through complex changes, whilst fostering workforce development. Delegates will learn how to tailor their communication and behaviour and will gain an insight into how this affects their team’s capability. Throughout a series of expert-led sessions, delegates will experience a range of new techniques and processes to assist them in overcoming the common challenges of this dynamic field.

This hands-on workshop will explore the foundations of good leadership, provide insight into communication styles and engaging with staff and stakeholders, and provide practical solutions to problems commonly faced by learning and development professionals. Delegates will acquire and build on the key skills necessary to enhance their leadership performance.
